  Sighisoara’s old town developed to its present form during the 12th-14th centuries and is today included on the World Heritage list. This medieval cityscape is exceptionally well preserved and amazes the visitor with its unique atmosphere.

From the most important sights, the nine remaining towers of the medieval fortification – especially the Clock Tower – as well as the cloister church (richly decorated with Turkish carpets from the 16th-17th centuries) and the fortified church in gothic style from the 14th century are the ones not to miss.

    The most famous – or, to be more exact, the most notorious – person born in Sighisoara is Walachia’s prince Vlad Tepes, who served as the model for Dracula’s character.
