During Sighisoara sightseeing tour we’ll explore one of the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval towns in Europe, being designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. A walk through the Schassburg (in German) citadel with its original medieval architecture, magical mix of winding cobbled alleys, steep stairways, secluded squares, towers, turrets and bastions, is like a travel back in time.
In Eastern Europe, Sighișoara is one of the few fortified towns that are still inhabited. The town is made up of two parts. The medieval stronghold was built on top of a hill and is known as the “Citadel” (Cetate). The lower town lies in the valley of Târnava Mare river.
The houses inside Sighișoara Citadel show the main features of a craftsmen’s town. However, there are some houses that belonged to the former patriciat, like the Venetian House and the House with Antlers.
