Know More about this tour

Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this perfectly intact 16th century gem with nine towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses and ornate churches rivals the historic streets of Old Prague or Vienna for atmospheric magic. It is also the birthplace of Vlad Dracula, also known as Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler), ruler of the province of Walachia from 1456 to 1462. It was him who inspired Bram Stoker's fictional creation, Count Dracula.

Founded by Transylvanian Saxons during the 12th century,Sighioara is a fine example of a small, fortified medieval town that played an important strategic and commercial role on the fringes of central Europe for several centuries.

On this tour, you will visit or stop at The House with the Deer Antler, The Venician House, Church of the Convent, the Clock Tower, the Catholic Church, Tailors Tower, Furriers Tower, Butchers Tower, Butchers Bastion, the Covered Staircase, the School Hill, the Church on the Hill (including an inside visit), the German Cemetery, Tin Moulders Tower, Vlad the Impalers birth house and Citadels Market place.

    We had this walk with Charles. A very nice person who told us interesting information about the citadel. Well organized tour with interesting locations visited.

    Our tour guide in Sighisoara was Charles and he was an absolute mine of information on the history of this beautiful city. The tour included everything we had hoped to see including the covered steps to the Church on the Hill. If you want to go into the church there is an added charge of 8 lei around 2.00 and this includes being able to take photos inside. We walked through the cemetery Charles will ask if you are ok with this and down the hill past some of the guild towers. I think this was better than going back down via the covered steps. Charles wasn't in a hurry and even extended our tour as we were so interested in the history. Great experience and well worth the cost.
