A route for everyone who loves nature and history in equal measure. We pass several fortified churches and at the same time enjoy the bike paths in the forest.

The route takes us through a hilly area with slight ascents and descents. We have a mix of roads: the road to Viscri, then the mountain bike path through the forest, we go down the forest road to Meșendorf and follow the county road to Criț. Before entering Criț vilage, a path detaches laterally that crosses the brook and takes us, along it, back to Bunești.

In addition to the picturesque landscapes, make sure you have time to visit the Saxon peasant fortress with the fortified evangelical church. Viscri is the best prepared place for tourists, everything being well arranged and signposted.

The fortified church of Meșendorf is far visible (being placed on a hill) and is to the left of the route. But this little detour is well worth it! In Meșendorf you will find several abandoned Saxon households and it is the least developed town in terms of tourism.

Also in Criț we recommend visiting the fortified village church. For this we will go through the whole village, which gives us the opportunity to admire the local architecture.

Author’s recommendation

Plan a full day for the route, so you can visit the many tourist destinations along the way.
