With a special beauty, Sighisoara fascinates by the architecture of its buildings and the diversity of its well-preserved Baroque and Gothic buildings, plus the legendary history that led to the city’s inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage.
The fortress was surrounded by a wall with 14 defensive towers but today there are only 9, including the Clock Tower, named after the 7 figures symbolizing the days of the week. Another representative building is the Church on the Hill, built in Gothic style.
If you want to take a trip back in time and feel the medieval atmosphere of hundreds of years ago, all you have to do is to come to the heart of Transylvania, more precisely to Sighisoara.
