Sighisoara

Historic Walking Areas · Landmarks · Churches
As a World Heritage Site, Sighisoara is visited mostly for its fortified Old Town surrounded entirely by city walls. The medieval history is rich here and has been well-preserved through time, as you may experience yourself if you catch one of the medieval festivals. The citadel, which is also named a World Heritage Site, stands here as another popular tourist attraction. The cobblestone streets and colorful buildings have an enchanting, fairy-tale quality. Situated in the heart of Transylvania, Sighisoara is often used as a base to visit the nearby Saxon villages of Viscri and Biertan.

Where to stay in Sighisoara

To fully enjoy Sighisoara's old-world charm, book a room in a guesthouse, hostel, bed and breakfast, or hotel in the medieval town center. Stay close to the citadel, the clock tower, or the Covered Staircase to be surrounded by 16th-century Saxon houses. The town is quite small, so book in advance, as it is a popular tourist destination.
