Visit Sighișoara

Historic sites

Visit Sighișoara, one of the best-preserved and most beautiful medieval towns in Europe, the citadel being fully inhabited.

Built in the 12th century by German Saxons, it charms visitors at any time of the year, especially in July during the 3-day Medieval Festival, when the town turns into a living history lesson.

Visit SighisoaraFavorite historical attractions are the citadel, towers, city walls, churches, guilds and craft shops. In addition, the tiny cobbled streets of Sighișoara are a unique treasure, with their original medieval architecture, connecting squares, towers, and stairways that present a magical walking place. Breathtaking panoramic views can be seen from the Clock Tower, a hallmark of the town.
It is Sighișoara where Vlad Țepeș (also known as Dracula) was born. The house where he lived now serves as a restaurant and a fitting location for the Museum of Weapons.
Sighisoara is now listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
