The village

Malancrav is the village with the largest Saxon population in Transylvania. It was founded in 1305 and belonged from 1340 until the 18th century to the Apafi family. Following the political changes in the region, Malancrav eventually went into the property of the Hungarian royalty, the countess Susanne Haller being its last owner. The main attractions of the village are its large Romanesque church, a three-naved basilica with a 23 meters fresco in the central nave, the ecologic apple orchard, the traditional architecture and talented local artisans like Maria Nistor and Elena Neagu.
