Pictures from Transylvania

Post  Pishkirlin on Mon Apr 20, 2009 9:18 am

After the Knights of Malta in 2007, this year I have paid a visit to the fellow Teutonic Knights in Transylvania.

Prejmer
The Teutonic Knights constructed the fortress Tartlau in 1212–1213 as part of their colonization of the Burzenland region. The town of Prejmer near the castle had begun development by 1225, and was the eastern-most settlement of the Transylvanian Saxons. [more..]

Făgăraş was during the Middle Ages, together with Amlaş, a traditional Vlach enclave in Transylvania. The first written document mentioning Romanians in Transylvania referred to Vlach lands ("Terra Blacorum") in the Fogaras Region in 1222. (In this document, Andrew II of Hungary gave Burzenland and the Cuman territories South of Burzenland up to the Danube to the Teutonic Knights.) After the Tatar invasion in 1241-1242, Saxons settled in the area.

Cârţa Monastery is a former Cistercian monastery in the Ţara Făgăraşului region in southern Transylvania in Romania, currently a Lutheran Evangelical church belonging to the local Saxon community. It lies on the left bank of the Olt River, between the cities of Sibiu and Făgăraş, close to the villages of Cârţa (German Kerz, Hungarian: Kerc) and Cârţişoara (German: Kleinkerz). [more...]

Cisnadie
Cisnădie was mentioned for the first time in a document from the year 1204 under the name "Rivetel". In the 12th century Saxon colonists settled here, and in 1323 the German name Heltau is mentioned. The town flourished, particularly the guilds of blacksmiths and wool weavers (weaving remained the traditional occupation of the town population until the 20th century, when large textile factories were built).

Wow Pish!

Amazing photographs, amazing places! Absolutely beautiful.

Those wonderful places and buildings look so full of historical background. Just by looking at them you can feel a strong "sense" of history, a feeling of ancient times. So many things must have happened in those places!

Wonderful places to visit! Powerful and beautiful photographs!

I absolutely loved them!

Thanks for sharing!
