The visit to the fortified church at Prejmer was a unique experience! A whole town is built on the interior of the circular walls which surround a very beautiful church. A visit to this monument transfers you to the medieval times and makes you reflect on the fear of the endless invasions that the villagers of Prejmer experienced.

Although it is a bit complex to get to Prejmer from Brasov by bus (the buses run once every hour or so from the station but it's difficult to get info on that), I'm glad I visited the place as the trip was well worth it. The fortification is very well maintained in the quiet little village and the museum... More

This is a simple day trip from Brasov. We rented a car and bundled the fortified church with a drive to Fagaras to see the fortress there. The Prejmer church was pretty top notch.. we are not religious at all but the idea behind this place was very interesting to us.. that during times of war, the village people would... More

A Fortified Church........... It's an evocative image, and apart from Transylvania, it's hard to find anything like this in Europe. Old Saxon towns are some of the last vestiges of medieval times in Europe.....try to get here if you can. It makes an easy day trip from Brasov, but take a bus! Taking a train to Prejmer isn't the best... More

The Prejmer Fortified Church was founded by the Germanic Teutonic Knights but was eventually taken over by Transylvanian Saxons. Construction began in 1218 with major fortifications in the 15 and 16 centuries. It was originally Roman Catholic but became a Lutheran Church following the reformation. The walls are 5 metres thick and up to 12 metres high. The 270 rooms... More

Amazing setting!!! So glad it is Unesco recognized. You can almost "imagine" the peasants seeking refuge in these surroundings. Beautifully kept.

The most impressive of the Saxon fortified churches near Brasov. And the one with the most effective defensive walls, as it has never been occupied by Turks or Tatars.Inside the walls perimeter are 250 rooms belonging each one to a village family. They use to live here in safety during sieges. Take your time and stroll around. Children adore the... More
