Visit Sighisoara medieval town including The Clock Tower, The Church on the Hill and the house where Vlad the Impaler was born.
Walking around the narrow streets we can admire, under the shadow of the old Clock Tower, the house where an unknown woman gave birth to a child ,Vlad, who will become famous all over the world as Dracula.
These streets, which also ignores the straight line and the horizontal plane, hide and reveal, at each step in an elaborate, but urban natural scenery, medieval paintings that delight the eye and incites the imagination. Unmistakable charm and personality of the city were built in time, by harmonizing the successive deposits of history.
Walking along the wall that surrounds Sighisoara citadel we admire the five centuries old houses along with the towers erected by various guilds of the citadel, from which the Shoemakers, Tailors and Tin Makers Guilds towers are the most impressive. We visit the Church from the Hill but not before climbing the 175 covered steps which was built in 1642 in order to make easier access for the schoolchildren's. From this highest point of the citadel you have the view of whole citadel, so don't forget your camera!
