Biertan Fortress. Biertan, Romania

This was a magical place! We visited in winter, as the snow was falling in big snow flakes. The fortress is big and beautiful, looks pretty much perfectly like a fairy tale.

At the time of our visit (winter) you couldn't enter, not sure about summer.

Biertan is one of the most important Saxon villages with fortified churches in Transylvania, having been on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1993. It was the see of the Lutheran Evangelical Bishop in Transylvania between 1572 and 1867.
