Saxons and Transylvania


A young married couple, the woman is wearing a headdress that "older" married women would wear, before wearing a kerchief.

A Saxon Church, this one is now a Romanian Orthodox Church.


Saxon Houses note they are all white, if they are still standing these days they are painted a bright colour. My grandmother's house is now a deep green and her parents house is a red.

A older fortified village or large town. People would run and hide inside during attacks.

Above are some pictures of the Saxons of Transylvania, the people and the buildings.
