Every carpet enthusiast should come at least once to Transylvania… We have been running this tour since 2004 and hundreads of people enjoyed the journey to Romania above expectations… Here are some comments from participants of the past tours.

This year we added an extra day (without increasing the cost of the tour) in order to enjoy the wonderful Saxon villages in Central Transylvania, with the fortified Churches included in the UNESCO heritage list. The presence of the Ottoman rugs in these churches is a fascinating culturual phenomenon.

We also added some unique features like the presence of a talented photographer Eduard Baak from Brasov http://eduardbaak.ro, who will produce an album of the tour. See some of his photos below… Download the brochure of the tour.
