Viscri



Atractii

Isolated from the main road which links Brasov to Sighișoara, the village of Viscri shelters one of the most spectacular Transylvanian Saxon fortified churches (UNESCO heritage). The name of the settlement is derived from the Romanian pronunciation of the Saxon word for white church - Deutschweisskirch. It is first mentioned in a 16th century accounts book of the bishopric of the county of Rupea. A century later, it is listed as a free commune with 51 households, three shepherds, a teacher and two paupers.
The particularities of this settlement have drawn attention to one Romanian foundation protected by Prince Charles himself which renovated the fortified church and some houses in the commune giving them the initial traditional glow.

Inside the fortified church the tourists travelling to Viscri can find a museum which reproduces the everyday traditions and the rural life of the Saxons of Transylvania. At the end of 1990, due to the lack of alternative employment when agriculture collapsed and due to the isolation of the village, a new project was born which has become a brand called “Echte Viscri Socken aus Schafwolle (“Genuine Viscri Sheep’s wool Socks”). It was initiated by two Germans residents in Viscri. The socks were knitted by recycling wool from sweaters and were traded for food (such as sugar, oil or bread). In time, 125 local women became involved in this project and today approximately 10.000 socks, mittens, sweaters and felt slippers are knotted by these local women. The products are nowadays sold in Germany or through the international cafe in Viscri.
