[Romania] Road trip to the Fortified Churches in the Sibiu County (part 1)

We were planning such a weekend for a long time, but each time we were considering of actually doing such a trip, we always said that we can leave it for another time, as these places are very close to home and we have some other options further away.


But finally, at the beginning of April, we said that this is it, we are doing it. We wanted to go somewhere with the baby, as the weather forecast was expected to be very good. As it’s still a bit difficult to go on long holidays with the baby, some short weekend road trips, with not too much driving are a good option to spend some time outside the city and explore the world 🙂

Human beings seem to have a weakness for castles, fortresses or citadels build on high peaks, from where they can guard and frighten us at the same time. We are not different, so it was time for us to go up to the Deva Fortress and see what it has to offer.

Just after you enter Geoagiu-Băi, there is a pathway to the Clocota Falls, a 20 m fall on the Clocota River. The name Clocota, means seethe or boil and the river was named like that because the waters of the river collect all the thermo-mineral springs in the area. Due to their temperature, they are a good environment for thermal water specific plants and animals.
