Cisnădioara is a small town about 10 km south of Sibiu and it’s where I camped for a few days. It’s a lovely town full of friendly people and a handful of impressive churches. The most famous church is the fortified St. Michael church up on a hill – one of more than 150 such churches throughout Transylvania. It’s an easy hike up to the church and visitors are treated to great views. Inside the church is a monument to soldiers killed during World War I.

The second church in Cisnădioara is the Evangelical church that dominates the center of town. Unfortunately the church was not open when I visited, so I could not see inside, but the tower is a humbling sight!

The third church is the smaller, painted Orthodox church next door. As in most other churches throughout Serbia and Romania that I’d previously visited, the bright colors and detailed murals that cover the walls and ceiling were delightful and uplifting.
