“The fair brings together the ecotourism offer of the whole Sibiu County: authentic experiences, local tastes and opportunities to spend free time in nature, through sporting, recreational and cultural activities. The fair serves as a source of inspiration for planning free days, be it an extended vacation or a long weekend, and for meaningful activities that are good for the body, mind and soul,” say the organizers.
