Stopped here by accident as driving past between Viscri and Brasov and I'm so glad I visited. The church itself is relatively plain yet still beautiful, however at the back are steps up to the roof where you can walk into the rafters and literally...More

Look for a local guide. It is a very nice place, recently restored. The clock tower was closed, unfortunately

Whilst driving from Brasov to Sighisoara on the E60 road, I first caught sight of the imposing St Stephan's Evangelical Fortified Church at Saschiz with its gleaming towers shimmering in the distance. As I drove nearer, I realised that this architectural delight was proudly standing...More
