The Fortified Churches

The Fortified Churches are an unique and interesting fenomenon. They can be found in only a few places throughout Europe and there were more than 300 Fortified Saxon Churches in Transylvania. Some of them are extinct, some of them are on the virge of extinction but most of them are still proudly standing, even in abandoned and forgotten villages. Some of them (7 to be more precise) had a better fate and they were declared heritage sites and are now on the UNESCO list (Biertan, Viscri, Saschiz, Prejmer, Valea Viilor, Calnic and Darjiu)
