  • The sadness of the empty and un-renovated church was balanced by the friendliness of the person keeping it.  more »
  • Danes is for sure the most beautiful, clean and fully flowers village I've seen in Romania. Everything looks great, well take care and, as I heared from people, all is because of the mayor attention.....  more »
  • The church itself and the entire fortification complex around it are astounding! But the state the buildings are in... It's a shame that in a couple of decades, without some serious conservation and restoration work, a lot of the local (and national) history will be forever lost to dust and weeds. I highly recommend visiting it, and awe at what our ancestors were capable of building.
  • Very nice. About 30 min to see everything. Walk around the church as well as inside, if you want to experience most of the area
