Itinerary
Stop At:  
Active Travel
We pick you up from Brasov (complimentary pick up from your location provided) at 9:00. We drive about 20 minutes to Bod village or Brendorf in German language – “The burned village”. Why is Bod called like this? In the manuscripts describing the abominable deeds of Prince Vlad the Impaler found in Lambach (in Upper Austria) it is written that: „In 1456, he ordered the burning of Bod from Tara Barsei, along with its inhabitants, men, women, children, of all ages. He put those who did not burn in chains and took them with him in Valacchia, where he impaled them all”. We start and finish the biking tour from Bod village. As mentioned, it is a private biking tour, so we travel with no strict schedule!

Stop At:  
Biserica Fortificata Sanpetru
Sanpetru Church: The landmark of the village is the 13th-century fortified church. The original 3-nave basilica was demolished in 1794. There are still a few traces of the original 13th-century paintings on the defensive walls that surrounded the church. The Order of Cistercians received it in 1240. The fortified church was severely destroyed during a Turkish invasion in 1432. Most of the village was also destroyed then. After the invasion, the local community built an 8-meter-high defensive wall fortified with 5 towers and a water trench. In the 17th century, the church suffered major damage in a large fire that also destroyed the local archives. The bell tower collapsed in 1713 and was rebuilt 1778–82. This tower later collapsed, and in 1795 the structure was demolished and construction on a new church was begun.
