Sighisoara & Breite

ROMANIA
May 2017

Breite is the name of a nature reserve which can be described as a savannah of meadows and huge oak trees. There are hundreds of oaks, many of them several hundred years old. These meadows cover the top of a long ridge, surrounded by steep beech forests. Breite is located just outside the town Sighisoara, a beutiful town that is considered to be one of the best-preserved medieval towns in the world.

Time to hike! The trail started by ascending through nice beech forest.

We finally reached the Breite plateu – a savannah of meadows and giant oaks.

Breite must be a paradise for insects, with so many oaks in various states of decay.


Leaving Breit to descend through the forest back to Sighisoara.
