Sighisoara was simply amazing. It has a medieval architecture that has been preserved for hundreds of years and it is also supposedly the birthplace of Count Dracula! The German influence in architecture is very evident in Sighisoara and it makes you feel like you have...More

Sighisoara is well worth the trip to experience a living example of a medieval town that is mostly unspoiled with the modern trappings of tourism. The Clock Tower has interesting exhibits on each floor and visitors are permitted to see most everything, including the clockworks...More

In the summer time is the best to visit the city but in the winter is also very good. You can walk on the little streets and stop at coffee shops and have a nice conversation with the locals. enjoy :)

Sighisoara is one of the most authentic medieval cities you can find and even though it's small, it is a must-see. It's quiet and relaxing and you'll get a good trip back in time.

This is beautiful ! And it is almost visible from almost every corner of the city. The wooden figures on the clock tower had stood from centuries back, isn't it amazing ? We simply love it.
