1. Brasov: Guided Distillery Day Trip to Rasnov
Your tour will begin as you are picked up from your accommodation in Brasov early in the morning. From there you will be driven 20 kilometers to the city of Rasnov. Once there you will visit the first distillery, where the owner will show you the basics of palinka distilling. See the multitude of flavors produced there, and if you think you can handle it, go ahead and taste the spirits (which taste better on a cold rainy day). Your next visit will be to the city of Sfantu Gheorghe, where you will visit the second distillery. This distillery produces world-famous drinks which have been awarded with various distinctions in world contests. There, you will have the chance to taste stunning and unique flavors of palinka, and be careful, some are quite strong! As the last stop of your tour, visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Prejmer citadel, one of the strongest fortifications in Transylvania. Built by Teutonic Knights in the 13th century, it is considered the largest fortified church in southeastern Europe. After admiring this impressive sight, head back to Brasov.
