  • The interior resembles in all the museum dedicated to Dracula. At one point, enough oil on canvas, various emblems, weapons and other various details that although replicas could belong to the period in which Vlad Tepes lived. Maximum of staff is dedicated to their work or because of the great rush of tourists is impossible to achieve the speed or is that part of marketing that in such an environment summarize all the impressions. In any case the restaurant is definitely worth a visit.
  • Affordable delicious cakes. The apple blackberry pie is very good.
  • Some online resources describe this as a tourist information center. It is not. It seems to be a mixture of I) Cafe, II) Folk Gallery III) Religious Outreach Center.
  • Amazingly well crafted sculptures and paintings from local craftsmen. The owner happily shares the tales of the gallery's origins in Romanian, English, German and Dutch. You're able to buy the displayed tools and art pieces to a good price. Very professional presentation and a secret tip for travelled!
  • What a beautiful place. It has been so long that I've heard of Spoonman (Mark Tudosie) and I finally get to see his work. It's a little cave hidden under the "House on the rock", full of wonderful artisanal wood work. The lady there can spend an hour telling you the story of each object

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.
