  • Maneciu Lake a stunning lake surrounded by beautiful forested hills
  • Tartar Ridge is a passage situated at 1.340 m altitude, an important trade route in Antiquity and in the Middle Ages which connects the center of Wallachia with Transylvania. Nowadays, you can walk on forest roads and tourist trails to admire a spectacular nature and to hear the incredible story of a stone fortress destroyed by Cumanians and Tartars and rebuilt by the Teutonic knights between 1211 – 1225, whose history continued until the 20-th century during the First World War.
  • Urlatoarea Waterfall with a height of 15 meters and an impressive flow, the waterfall has earned its name due to the noise it produces. You can safely walk to the top of the waterfall and admire the landscape. So did Queen Mary, the grandmother of King Michael I. It is said that, in her riding walks, she stopped 300 meters above the waterfall to rest on the “Queen’s Bench- a stone in a shape of a royal seat.
  • Prejmer fortified church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest fortified church in Southeastern Europe. The church was built by Teutonic Knights in 1212.
  • Black Church a 500-year-old Black Church is the most representative monument in Brasov and the largest Gothic church in Transylvania. The construction of this Gothic Evangelic church initially called Saint Mary’s Church, began around 1380 and was finalized in 1477. The Black Church, the largest holly place in Gothic style in south-eastern Europe, has a capacity of 5,000 people, is 90 meters long and 37 meters high and the cross’ tower measures 65 meters.
  • Dracula’s Castle is a national monument and one of the most important Romanian landmarks. The castle began its life as a wooden citadel in the 13th century built by the Teutonic Knights and changed its outer appearance with time, adapting to the purpose it served. In 1920 the castle became a royal residence within the Kingdom of Romania. It became the favourite home and retreat of Queen Marie, who ordered its extensive renovation.
  • Rasnov Citadel one of the best kept fortification of Transylvania. It was built by Teutonic Knights as protection against invading Tartars and was later enlarged by the local Saxon population. Strategically located on the commercial route linking the provinces of Transylvania and Walachia, Rasnov used to shelter at least 30 houses, a school, a chapel and other buildings commonly associated with a village. The defensive system included nine towers, two bastions and a drawbridge. The view from the top of the castle hill is absolutely spectacular.
  • Off-road adventures take out your camera for spectacular and breathtaking surroundings. 
  • Authentic mountain villages wild and quiet at the same time, will reveal themselves through fascinating wooden houses and beautiful hills covered in amazing colours. The two villages were founded in the Medieval Ages and are offering a rich cultural heritage and breathtaking landscapes.
  • Dambovicioara Gorges a wonderful place for nature lovers, you will be amazed by its beauty, by the imposing stature of the cliffs, how a river only 1-2 m wide can create a natural wonder unique in the world. The Valley is 1254m high and it offers magnificent and unique scenery.

This was absolutely THE best time ever!! We were in Bucharest for a week and decided to book the 3 Day Tour in Barsa Land for some adventure and sightseeing. I would recommend Dan and 4×4 Wild Tours to my family and friends and when we’re back in Romania, I’ll be giving Dan a call!
