A traveler from Portland, US writes about the villages with fortified churches in Transylvania “As we approached Malancrav we drove carefully through geese who crowded the tiny roads. We were greeted by two women chopping firewood. … At Richis, we were led about by an elderly man who is apparently the last of the Saxons in the village (along with his wife). He was very enthusiastic and informative as he revealed the Pagan symbols hidden about the church. He had a genuine, “old world” warmth about him. … If you have any interest in authentic villages reminiscent of times past, nice people, farm animals and absolutely beautiful countryside then this is the place for you!” (full review here)

An Italian visiting Bucovina wrote “The frescoes from Voronet, Humor, Moldovita, Arbore or Sucevita are all governed by a unifying spirit which is expressed on the one hand by the recurrence of artistic styles, means, motifs and scenes, and, on the other hand by the absolute harmony established between man’s genius at work and the beautiful natural background against which the monasteries were set.

Someone from Houston, US said about Bran Castle: “to name Bran Castle as “Dracula’s Castle” would be equivalent to naming Neuschwanstein Castle as “Cinderella’s Castle”. Dracula is pure fiction, but Bran Castle has a very real history. This castle fortress is about as authentic as you can find.” (full review here)
