After two hours driving through the scenic Romanian landscape, we will stop in Rasnov City, to visit the Rașnov peasant fortress. Situated on a rocky hilltop, the XIV century is one of the best-preserved peasant fortresses in Transylvania.

The next step is to explore and discover a couple of traditional mountain villages, where the time appears to stand still.
The remote villages of Pestera and Măgura are situated right between Piatra Craiului and Bucegi Mountains, miles away from the bustle of the urban life. These villages welcome tourists to enjoy a picturesque landscape in an authentic rural environment.

The key element of this trip is the encounter with the traditional Romanian cuisine. You will serve a traditional lunch at Casa Folea guesthouse in Pestera village. Our lovely host and cook Mrs. Rodica will prepare for you the local meal for lunch.
