The first trip to Marginimea Sibiului we had this year

  • by

I just came from the guided tour to Marginimea Sibiului, the magnificent rural area located just a few kilometers from Sibiu. Together with my guests from UK, we attended the Sunday mass at one of villeges from Marginime, admiring the simple beauty of the national costume, still proudly worn by the local people on special occasions  . We continued with the Icons Museum from Sibiel,  an unique exposition of naive religious art collected by the priest Zoasim Oancea. The journey continued with a visit to a fortified church, from a former Saxon village, and in the afternoon we drove up to the mountains to experience the authentic way of living  of the shepherds, that has been perpetuated for centuries by the local community.
