What to expect

In the morning your guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Brasov. You will reach Ohaba village, where you will visit an old water mill which is still used nowadays by the locals and for those who prefer the old way of grinding wheat. Find out the fantastic stories of wheat grinding from the mill owner. The family is maintaining the water-powered mechanism for many generations, so they are the best to tell the secrets of this place.
Continue your trip to the nearby village of Sinca Veche, where you will visit the cave temple, famous for being a mystical place where people used to come and pray. Because of its high popularity, the place is usually full of tourists who enter the caverns and experience - some say - unknown and invisible powers.
Your next stop will be in Sinca Noua where you will go on a 10 minutes easy hike to visit the Podu Ilii viaduct, which belongs to an abandoned railway track. For its time, it was considered to be the biggest arched concrete viaduct in Romania.
You will have a delicious lunch near the village of Poiana Marului and return to Brasov.
