Sighisoara holidays

Sighisoara, situated in Transylvania province in central Romania, is famous for its architecture dating from the 14th century. Walk up from the city to the medieval citadel and enter through the 60-metre-tall clock tower built in 1360. The ochre-coloured house named ‘Casa Vlad Dracula’, where Vlad the Impaler (better known as Vlad III Dracula) was born, is now a cosy restaurant.

The town of Sighisoara is the most enchanting of all the Transylvanian towns. Its medieval buildings, gilded roofs and towers have been unspoiled by war or modern industry. The citadel, built by the Saxons in the 12th century, rises above the town and is preserved as a museum.
