Located in Criţ, Casa cu zorele, Crit 189 has a garden, terrace and free WiFi throughout the property. The guest house features family rooms. I loved the wild surroundings and the out of civilization sensation. It was a good experience for our child as she enjoyed every moment. The village is so authentic. Our hosts were amazing with good food and conversation!
Dating back to the 18th century, this renovated house is located in the Saxon village of Criţ, 7.5 mi from Saschiz, a Unesco World Heritage Site. Free WiFi is provided at Convivium Transilvania. Very big room, in a vert well preserved village house. Huge garden and an amazing breakfast area. The host took good care of us and provided us with all the information we needed about the area. It is also close to the fortified church, an unesco heritage place. It’s worth taking a stroll around the village, as well as the ones around it, such as Viscri. In the month on July there is a cultural festival in the villages around and a lot of amazing events happen there.

Such a marvelous stay, we appreciated every single detail of our trip to Rupea. We had the room with the terrace, which offers a delightful view of the citadel, especially at night, when everything lights up. Very good breakfast, everything was tasteful and plenty to start the day with good vibes. The host is the cherry on top. We are grateful for everything she's done for us, helping us reach the guest house, the treats and chat in the patio, for providing us with bikes for a day-trip to Viscri and so much more. Thank you, we felt most welcome and look forward to coming back soon, as there's more left to explore.
Featuring free WiFi, Casa Kraus is the former parish house of the old village of Deutsch-Kreuz (Criț) in Transylvania, which has been rebuilt as per the original designs. The location is magical. The view from the outside terrace is set towards the magnificent Transylvanian hills. The food is good and you can also explore nearby villages by renting bykes
The fortified church is definitely worth visiting. The terra-cotta tiles and small museum were great. There is an absolutely wonderful view of the village if you climb to the top of the church tower.
Beautiful rural atmosphere of old times. Morning and evening the cows and the goats belonging to the villagers gather and parade on the main street going out, irrespectively coming back from the pastures. Beautiful well maintained old German houses, built almost 2 centuries ago in-the architectural style of those times. The fortified church is imposingly majestic but between November and end of March is closed. However there is a phone number on its gate and somebody from the village will open it if there will be at least 5 adults wanting to visit. We had lunch at Viscri32 but we found the quality not great and the prices high compared with what one can have in a quality restaurant in a big town.
Viscri is an absolutely overrated place and this is visited only because Prince Charles decided to buy a property in that area, a property he only visits once in a while. One of the ugliest villages in the area, most properties in the village are run-down, but extremely expensive now for the reasons I just mentioned. There is no restaurant in the village where you can have a decent meal and my experience with the meal at one of the pensions in the area is really bad, with my wife in bed for two days after the visit, ill with enterocolitis. The road to Viscri is absolutely horrible and unless you really have a 4-wheel drive or mountain-bike, I don't recommend going there. The only thing you can do there is going on treks and mountain-biking. In general, I do not recommend if you want just to have a nice, relaxing weekend.
Obviously one comes here because of the fortified church, and its fame is justified. But then, it is the place that is unique. The sense of rural tranquillity that still (but how long will this last?) permeates it was one of the most rewarding experiences of our whole journey in Romania. The most unforgettable moment? At dusk, when livestock that have spent the day grazing in some pasture around the village come back home, all together, in the most perfect absence of modern noises.
