Heritage sites to visit in Romania

  

Romania

Since the arrival of the discount airlines in the year 2007 along with the EU membership, it has put a damper on the increase in the tourism profile of the country Romania. This is changing significantly with thanks to the incredible diversity of the country in relations to the very affordable rewards they offer. This country has many major heritage sites that attract a significant amount of tourists.

The Sighisoara historic center is among the country's most visited heritage sites and is the busiest of all the heritage sites in the country. The citadel was comprehensively restored and this has attracted an even bigger audience of tourist to the destination. The half a century-year-old clock tower along with the other beautifully colored buildings and the cobble stone streets are the major attractors of the destination. The collection of museum found at the destination is also another of this site's major attractions.
In Transylvania, approximately thirty kilometers to the southeast of Sighisoara, the Biertan's Saxon church is found. This is a fifteenth-century Anglo-Saxon church that has a very imposing demeanor and a formidable security system. The building is protected by a stunning nineteen locks backed by the double wall that surrounds the building. The locking system of this church was recognized by the Paris World Expo in the nineties for the craftsmanship in the engineering of the system. This locking system is operated by the single locking mechanism that controls the entire system.
The ground of the church is home to other small buildings including a very popular bastion. This building was used in the process of trying to keep married couples together. It is used to find the love lost by couples by keeping them locked together for weeks. This was a very effective divorce and only a single coupe was unable to be treated in a span of four hundred years with the uses of this building.
There is an atmospheric Saxon village that has been restored and lies also to the southeast of Sighisoara that is also a site of interest in this country. There is a lovely view of the valley from the top of the twelfth-century church tower with the only access being steep open stairs. The same views can be seen from the top of the bastions and the journey to their tops is a lot less intimidating. The church is also the home of a two-level museum that will be worth investigating.
The brightly and beautifully colored homes that decorate the village and the serene and traditional village experience to be had is really the major attraction of this site. There are places where you can get bedding for overnight in the coveted rest areas of this village. There have even been two houses in the area of Viscri that was purchased and restored by Prince Charles. He has been a long term fan of the Romanian heritage.
The prince is also responsible for painting a few monasteries in the area of Sothern Bucovina. This is a region on the northeastern side of Romania s that has a sprinkling of brightly painted fifteenth-century style monasteries. These buildings are creatively painted with several sporting murals depicting biblical scenes. The paintings are not only found on the exterior of these buildings but they are also found on the inside of these monasteries. Some have been exceptionally preserved despite been battered by the elements for the years. The painting on the building makes them some of the Europe's most exciting achievement in terms of artistry. The unbelievable life span of the buildings' painting is a part of the appeal the other side of the equation. The other side of the equation rest on the stories and the depictions found in the murals.
Many of these sites can be accessed by regular transportation but to get the full of what they offer, it is recommended that one hire the services of a tour guide. Most of these monasteries were found for god by Steven the Great in thanks for being victorious over the Ottomans.

What would make it very fascinating is; not like other usual dinner, there's a ‘rule' to attend this dinner party.

They also have to bring their own table and chair, table cloth, and napkins (in white, too). Also, they have to bring gourmet meal items, dinnerware, and wine by themselves.
On the other hand, Le Diner en Blanc attended in a very secretive way. Every participant didn't even know where the location of the events is. Until one day before, the organizer of this events will tell the location to the participant. The member also keeps events as a secret. This might be in reason to keep the tradition of the ‘spread the word mouth to mouth' from the 1st Le Diner en Blanc itself. In additional, to attend this party, someone has to be invited by the member of Le Diner en Blanc from last year.
This events occur in a public area, because there is no place can afford a very big mass doing this Le Diner en Blanc. Here is some of the places where Le Diner en Blanc had been occurred; Palais Royal (2015), Bridges of the Seine and the Invalides (2014), Trocadero and the Louvre (2013), Notre Dame, Places des Vosges and Versailles (2012), Cour Carrée du Louvre and Notre Dame (2011), Carrousel du Louvre (2010), Place de la Concorde (2009), The Champs-Élysées (2008), Arc de Triomphe/L'Etoille (2007), The Invalides (2006), Louvre-Palais Royal (2005).
There's a live music during the events, and the special thing is fireworks. After the dinner, they usually ended it with igniting fireworks. Imagining all of this things together; 10,000 people wearing all white, sitting, chattering, and eating at the wonderful place of Paris, viewing a beautiful scenery, the night light of Paris, sipping wine, and fireworks. What a beautiful and perfect night.
Oh, but don't forget, every party will leave a trash. They have to clean up all of their trash too. After the cleaning up, they went home at the same time, left the place empty like there's nothing ever happened.
