With the Paramotor above the Churches of Transylvania – Day 2 – Sighisoara

Flying to Sighisoara and back

It was already late in the afternoon, but we did not stop after our trip to Medias. We refuelled, ate something and off we went to visit Sighisoara (DE: Schäßburg, HU: Segesvár), another major attraction of this region.

It was a magic flight with the setting sun flooding every building of Sighisoara with orange light, but it did not end there.

On the way back we made a small detour and flew over Noiștat (DE: Neustadt, HU: Újváros). Check how the roof on the building next to the church has collapsed.

We were after another hidden gem, however, the small village of Movile (DE: Hundertbüchlen, HU: Százhalom). They didn’t even have an asphalted road leading to the village, just some gravel full of potholes. The village is misnamed even on google maps/earth (it is called Iacobeni, which around 10 km from here).

But the church in the village has two towers spaced exactly like pilons in a paramotor competition. On the approach to the village, we came up with the brilliant idea to fly figure 8-s around the two church towers just like at a competition. Barni did not shy away from the task.

At the end we moved our camp from this lovely field to Sighisoara and stayed overnight simply in his van in a parking lot. Plain and simple.
