Only at 35 km from Sibiu, in Porumbacu de Sus, in the valley of the fairies, we find a clay castle, worthy of the stories of the Grimm brothers. The castle is structured on two levels, ground and attic,and it has 10 rooms, each with its own rustic design and 2 towers. It was built only with natural materials (stone and cement, wood, lime and clay) by craftsmen from Maramures, the region of northern Romania. The plaster of the castle is based on hydraulic lime, with calcifying, limestone properties with which the Romans built the fortresses. The valley of the fairies is the place where, for several hours, you can breathe fresh air and enter a fairy-tale world with fairies and princesses. Inside the castle there is also a souvenir shop with personalized gifts, fridge magnets, sweet ginger, hot chocolate and apple juice that can be enjoyed in specially set up places. The fairy tale boxes wait for every tourist to make a wish. In the afternoon, we visit Sibiu, one of the largest cities in the country, famous for its urban architecture reminiscent of German or Austrian urban centers. We visit the Big Square, the Huet Square, the Bridge of Lies and the Bruckental Palace. The tour continues with Sibiel, a mountain tourist village where we take the dinner and stay overnight.
