Sighisoara

(3.9/5 based on 2,400+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, sightseeing, shopping
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.
