The Fortified Churches in Transylvania

The day after our adventure in the mountains, Lars and I decided to take it a bit easy. Less kilometers and less adrenaline. So we started our day with a visit to two of the fortified churches in Transylvania. But what exactly are these? In the 12th century German settlers came to this area. In order to defend themselves from Ottoman…
