Cyclotourism on "The Hills of Transylvania"

Bicycle tourism begins to develop in Romania, with more and more marked trails, from the Black Sea to the Danube, inside and alongside the localities, from plains to hills and mountains. Long and short routes are available to Romanian and foreign tourists, who are excited by the beauty of the spectacular scenery of the area. O

ne of the most beautiful trails is the Transylvanian Hills, which crosses two Natura 2000 sites, protected at the European level:

The Hârtibaciu Plateau - site designated in 2007 as an "Avifaunistic Special Protection Area", recognized for the protected species of the bird living in the area; Sighişoara-Târnava Mare - declared in 2008 "Community Importance Site", recognized for the habitats of meadows, lakes, shrubs, forests of different types and for many protected species of flora and fauna.

The trails cross 26 villages with fortified churches, reach the medieval fortress of Sighisoara, and connect four UNESCO monuments of Sighisoara, Viscri, Saschiz and Breite. Everything is perfectly picturesque, a friendly hilly area with altitudes reaching 800 meters, with a wonderful landscape that alternate pastures with forests.

In the eastern area of the "Târnava Mare" (Sighişoara-Viscri), are available over 80 km of cobbled trails. A total of 32 trails marked by 70 informative panels await the tourists eager for sports, nature, history and culture.

In this type of tourism, the cyclists have the opportunity to interact with the local traditions and locals, to get acquainted with the traditional agricultural practices (present for centuries on these meadows), to visit impressive historical monuments, to enjoy all the splendor of the landscape in which they are interwoven more natural elements: meadows, pastures, forests with secular trees, lakes, grasslands with field flowers, butterflies and birds.
