Sighisoara Citadel

Located in the legendary area of Transylvania, Sighisoara is a great example of a well-preserved, fortified medieval town.

Founded in the 12th century by Transylvanian Saxons, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is run through by narrow cobbled streets, filled with colourful houses, and elevated towers. The Old Town of Sighisoara is definitely a medieval jewl at its finest. The city is also known as the birthplace of Vlad III the Impaler, who served as the inspiration for the fictional character Count Dracula, in Bram Stoker's world-renowned novel.

Sighisoara's delightful medieval buildings are enclosed within its citadel, a complex of protective walls and watchtowers. Walking in the citadel is today a tranquil, fairy-tale-like experience, but these towers were once loaded with weapons and emergency supplies, defending Sighisoara from enemy attacks.
