Biertan is found off of Route 14 SE of Medias and SW of Sighisoara in Transylvania. Definitely make it part of your day when visiting Sighisoara! This fortified church, that was defended against invaders, was the former bishop's seat and housed many treasures - a unique feature to see is the elaborate lock on the sacristy door which joins the door frame at 18 places! Particularly interesting within the church are the pew box sections for the town guilds and especially the original tapestry guild flags hanging over each box. During my visit, a guide was sitting in the choir box and ready to interpret the building, although the gift shop was closed in the late afternoon. Biertan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and shows an interesting part of Romanian history built by German settlers.
