Discover two of Eastern Europe’s best preserved fortified churches on a half-day guided tour from Brasov. With your guide, learn about and explore the history-rich Harman and Prejmer churches which date back to the fascinating Saxon era.

The tour departs from Brasov and travels back in time to the Saxon era. In the 12th century, the German Saxons arrived in Transylvania playing a major role in the development of powerful strongholds and fortresses throughout the region. The influence of the Saxons, also known Sasi, jumpstarted the region’s economy and began a cultural evolution which left behind an array of impressive fortified churches – the focal point of the tour. With your English-speaking expert guide, visit two of the most well-preserved fortified churches in Eastern Europe, Prejmer and Harman. At Prejmer, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, learn about why the church was built in the shape of a Latin cross, and admire its imposing Gothic architecture. Listen to your guide share stories about its rich history, which dates back to 1427, and the many events that have taken place here throughout the ages. As you explore this fascinating site, which was built to withstand attacks from the Ottomans, marvel at the 14-meter-high and 5-meter-thick walls. At Harman church, gaze upon the fascinating Roman Basilica and Gothic inspired architecture. Wander around the site and visit the west tower, the chapel, and the moat before heading inside the church to see its collection of paintings, dating back to the 13th century.
