An epic place to return in time. I loved to walk on old streets and admire old buildings very well preserved.

“Wonderful Romanian preservation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

The historic area of Sighisoara was the best preserved city we visited. The twisted streets, high walls, cobblestoned streets, and the clock tower in the town square were fantastic. You could almost picture yourself back in the 1400-1500s! Wandering around was very easy. I would recommend this city to anyone wanting to get a real feel for Romanian city history.

“So Vlad!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

Everything of interest easily walkable, even down the hill into "town" where there are banks, groceries, etc. Stunning views of clock tower regardless of angle. For those not automated, like me, there are computers to use in a sort of foreign student/crafts/cafe place.

“Charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

Once you drive under the arch into the center it is like being transported back in time. Some renovation going on, but the squares, houses, shops and sites are so photogenic they made up for it. Very easy to get your guide book and do a self guided walk anti clockwise from the Clock Tower and see everything. Took about 2 hours walking slowly.
