Saxon and Székely Transylvanian villages were often organised around a fortified church. With its more than 150 well preserved fortified churches of a great variety of architectural styles (out of an original 300 foritifed churches), south-eastern Transylvania region in Romania currently has one of the highest numbers of existing fortified churches from the 13th to 16th centuries. A group of six Saxon and one Székely villages is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Prejmer is one of them.
The original German name of this village is Tartlau.
