The Road to Magyarszovát, January 7, 2018

Join four members of the BUF touring choir and friends as they detail adventures of their June 2017 pilgrimage to the BUF partner church in Magyarszovát, Transylvania, through photos, story, music, and other souvenirs. 

The region of Transylvania is known for the scenery of its Carpathian landscape and its rich and abundant history and multicultural convergence of Romanians, Hungarians, Saxons and Roma. It is a region rich in myth and misty medieval sites. Romania's greatest and best-preserved castles, fortresses, and fortified churches are to be found here. Modern-day Transylvania is home to some of the most developed cities in Romania, but also villages where people still live as they did a hundred years ago. There are many small villages still centered around their community churches, still depending upon the bounty of their livestock and land for their survival.
