The tour will include the visit of Sambata de Sus Monastary, the "Brancoveanu" Monastery, famous for being a place of recovery, comfort and spiritual calm for visitors.
Sambata de Sus Monastery was build in the 17th century, when Preda Brâncoveanu erected on Sambata Valley the first church.
The architectural style fits entirely Brâncoveanu style, which emerged in Wallachia at the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century.
Stones decorate the windows and the door frames and I took real interest in observing the front entrance door, the sculptured pillars and the stone panels of the church which add a special beauty to the monastery.
After the visit at the monastery we will continue our to to visit Balea Lake, in the Fagaras Mountains, one of the biggest mountains in Romania, also known as the Transylvanian Alps.
On arrival at Balea Waterfall, you’ll stop to capture photographs before proceeding to Balea Lake, arguably the most beautiful glacial lake in the Carpathian Mountains from here we will continue with the car or with the cable car.
We will start to drive on Romania's most beautiful road, named by the television show Top Gear as "the best road in the world". The Transfagarasan Highway is the second-highest road in Romania, reaching as high as to 2,034 meters at Balea Lake.
At the chalet we will have the lunch and after some free time for your soul.
We will finish the tour with a transfer back to Brasov where your tour ends.
