Great way to learn about the Szekler community

Visited the potter and the smith - it was a fun and interesting way to find out about crafts, traditions and the way of life of the Szekler community! Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend both Carpathian Escapes and this tour!
