Viscri sau ce mai e frumos la noi in tara / Viscri or what is still beautiful in Romania

Tocmai ne-am intors de la Viscri. Nu, din pacate Majestatea Sa, Printul Charles, nu era acolo, dar ne-a lasat vorba ca bem ceaiul impreuna data viitoare 🙂

We just came back from Viscri. No, unfortunately His Majesty, Prince Charles, wasn’t there, but he left a message for us promising that next time we’ll have tea together 🙂

Viscri e un sat de poveste. Tot ce se spune despre el la televizor este adevarat si chiar dincolo de influenta media, te poti convinge singur de acest lucru inca din primele minute dupa sosirea ta.

Viscri is a fairy tale village. Everything told about it is true and even beyond the media influence, you can feel this on your own few minutes after your arrival.

Este liniste, casele sunt asa cum au fost mereu, fara modernizari, fara culori care se poarta. Inca au motivele traditionale pictate, inca au culori puternice dar obisnuite pentru atmosfera sateasca.

Is quiet, the house still are as they always have been, without being modernized, without trendy colors. They still have the traditional element painted on the walls, they still have strong colors but normal for the village’s atmosphere.

Viscri te imbie sa te plimbi si sa il descoperi. Desigur, cele mai importante locuri de vizitat sau de vazut aici sunt casa Printului Charles (transformata in pensiune) si Biserica Evanghelica, datata din 1225 (cea mai veche biserica saseasca din Transilvania), inca utilizata.

Viscri is inviting you to walk around and discover it. Of course, the main places to visit or to see are Prince Charle’s house (also a pension) and the Evangelical Church, from 1225 (the oldest Saxon Church in Transilvania), still used. 

Pretul de vizitare al acesteia, dar si a Muzeului Satului, aflat in incinta ei este de doar 8 lei. Fiecare coltisor al acesteia poate fi vizita, iar vederea din turn este absolut spectaculoasa.

The entrance price, but also of the Village Museum, which is inside is only 8 lei. Every corner of it can be visited, and the view from the tower is absolutely spectacular. 

Pe langa pretul de intrare, doamna de acolo vindea tot felul de carti postale sau leaflet-uri informative, banii fiind folositi pentru intretinerea bisericii, care repet, este inca folosita.

Beside the entrance price, the lady over there was selling different kinds of postcards or informative leaflets and all the money are used for the church, which I repeat, is still used.

Curtea bisericii este si ea minunata, iar faptul ca azi e o zi minunata de primavara, o face si mai speciala. Satenii administreaza diferite cafenele rurale, la ei in curte, foarte simpatice. Ba chiar am cumparat de la un baietel, incantat de prezenta turistilor un magnetel ca amintire. Colectia mea se mareste!!!

The yard is also great and the fact that today is a wonderful spring day, makes it even more special. The villagers have some rural cafes, in their own yards, very cute and cool. I even bought from a little boy, charmed by the tourists presence, o magnet as a souvenir. My collection is getting bigger!!! 

Daca vreti sa va simtiti eroi intr-o poveste, vizitati Viscri! Singurul lucru care probabil nu il spune nimeni despre acest sat la televizor este cat de rau este drumul pana acolo, din pacate…

If you wanna feel like heroes of a story, visit Viscri! The only thing probably nobody would tell about this village at TV is related to the fact that, unfortunately, the road up to there is sooo bad…

Vizita a meritat, iar elementul meu spune ca vom reveni atunci cand vom avea copii:)

The visit was worth and my element says we will go back there together with our children:)
