2 reviews of Orlat


The town of Orlat is about an hour away from Sibiu by car. It's on the main road from Sibiu to Sebes. Orlat is an ancient Saxon village which was created in the Middle Ages by a population which had come from Germany to defend the region, which was then in the Austrian Empire. Orlat has big houses which are very typical of those found in Saxon villages, where straw is stored during the winter. It is a tourist place where you can experience Saxon culture. You can visit its churches and monasteries and share the daily life of the Romanian Peasant. For example Orlat is beside the village with Foltea monastery, a world heritage site.
