Cincsor Guesthouses

Cincsor Guesthouses

, Romania

The Former Evangelical School, together with the Former Parish House and the Fortified Church in Cincsor, form a historic ensemble that is typical for the Transylvanian Saxon villages. The church, school, parish house and community represent the core of spirituality and Saxon culture.

Build in 1910 in the Art Nouveau Style and restored in 2014, the former Protestant Saxon School, now turned into a guesthouse, offers the perfect getaway and relaxation.

Apart from the 4 bedrooms, the guesthouse features a recreation area in the chimney room, a library/media room and a well-lit porch designed as a dining area.

The Former Evangelical Parish House is the oldest private building in Cincsor. It was regarded as the spiritual center of the community – all priests had a higher education, some of them even studied in renowned universities in Germany and so were meant to bring progress to all Saxon communities, progress that was usually concentrated around the Church. The former Parish House was probably built sometime before 1600, having only one room at that time and was extended as the years and centuries followed.

Where the stables used to be there are today rooms and large apartments that open in the spacious Parish garden and yard.
