To know about the project...

The prolonged disinterest of the authorities should not discourage us from appreciating and conserving the architectural treasures of Transylvania.

Intended to raise the awareness regarding the deplorable state of many historical monuments in Transylvania, this project aims to combine usefulness with enjoyment — to inform, educate, and perhaps amaze.

Who knows… maybe the united effort will help these vestiges to see better times!
