Go back to the time of medieval craftspeople and merchants at Sighisoara Historic Center, a small, fortified town--now a World Heritage Site--built by Saxon settlers in the 12th century. This was the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, a daunting Romanian ruler whose life story inspired the legend of Dracula. Strategically built on a hill, the town played an important commercial role on the route between Central Europe and the Ottoman Empire. Walk amidst the stone and brick houses topped by high tiled roofs. Take the long stairway, covered by the 17th-century wooden roof and guarded by a clock tower, to reach the citadel on top of the hill. Nine out of the original 14 watchtowers remain standing on the citadel wall. To visit Sighisoara Historic Center and other attractions in Sighisoara, use our Sighisoara itinerary planner.

  • מתחם המצודה יפה ושונה ממקומות אחרים, במקום מרוכזים מבנים יפים והנוף של העיר יפה מאד. במתחם הציורי מסעדות ובתי קפה רבים. יש להחנות את הרכב בחניון למטה. 
  • The upper town is the historic centre of Sighisoara. It's beautiful, you can see the House or was born Vlad Dracul, 16 towers (each corporation provided the defenses). Must visit. Parking at the foot of the upper town.

  • Nice walk, the only downside was the rain thankfully not all the way. You can enjoy a splendid view of the lower town, several cafes cute with many young people and several scenes of everyday life to capture. Old houses with their old roofs give off a fascination with things of the past. Kept spotless without shouting.
