Kõmíves Kelemenné Express

Experience Train trip to Déva – The ballad revives!

We look forward to an exciting autumn, since the destination of our Experience Train is the Transylvanian Déva on 22.10.2012. According to the Transylvanian ballad the useless castle of Déva was built by 12 masons, but it collapsed between the midday and the evening, the evening and the morning. So they decided, that the wife who arrived the first would be built into the walls, so that the castle of Déva could stand.

„Among themselves twelve masons have had made a pact,.

They'd build the high castle at Déva, strong as rock.”

So they did. The gentle body of Kõmíves Kelemenné who arrived the first was burnt and her ashes were mixed in lime, so the castle of Déva could remain.

After the early departure our passengers are welcomed with spirits and accompanying snacks – which has become a tradition by now. During the journey we enjoy ourselves with balladic pools, music, and introducing the landscape we are flitting by, as well as we select the 12 mason couples.

Arriving at the border at 10 o’clock, there will be a native Transylvanian welcome with blue-berry liqueur and kürtõskalács. Passing through Partium, the 12 masons who has been raffled sit together and they raffle who will be Kõmûves Kelemenné, who puts on a period dress, and then the lady says goodbye to the passengers. Arriving Déva at 14:30, we visit the Child Rescue Centre (Franciscan Orphanage) established by Böjte Csaba enjoying an internation reputation, it is possible to donate.

We climb to the castle. Here the seniors are considered, as they can go by a lift (A. Ticket with a lift), and those who are ready for a youthful challenge by 30 minutes walk (B. Youthful challenge ticket: freshener is provided for the promenade), where after having a welcome drink, the spectacular immuration of Kõmíves Kelemen begins at 16:00


“Gently they captured her, threw onto the fire

Mixed with lime her ashes built a lasting spire”
