Introducing Biertan

Your first glimpse of Biertan's medieval church is unforgettable: towering over the square below, clustered with vividly painted houses and backed by vineyards and tussocky meadows, this feels like a place that time forgot. There's a couple of places to stay, a decent restaurant and a market in the square that sells handicrafts. If you're lucky enough to time your visit in mid-August you'll be here for the Lună Plină (Full Moon) Horror Film Festival (www.lunaplinaferstival.ro). Biertan also hosts a Saxon Festival in mid-September.
