Sighisoara Sights

Sighisoara is a shining gem. Its magical cobbled streets boast nine towers, burgher houses and ornate churches. The atmosphere rivals that of Prague or Vienna. In addition to a visit to Vlad Dracula’s house, highlights of Sighisoara include the Citadel, the Clock Tower and the Scholars’ Stairs. The city built the covered staircase in 1642 to protect citizens on their winter climb to school and church. Sighisoara is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. There’s much to discover. The Church on the Hill has 500-year-old frescoes. The Church of the Dominican Monastery is famous for its renaissance carved altarpiece, baroque pulpit and 17th century organ. We recommend taking a walking tour in Sighisoara to get acquainted with the city.

Sighisoara Tourism

It’s odd how such a colorful and uplifting place can have a legend like Dracula attached to it. But Sighisoara embraces its darker side. There's both a Weapons Collection (housed in Vlad Dracula’s house) and a Torture Museum. There’s a Festival of Medieval Arts and Crafts in July, but year-round you can experience Transylvania craftsmanship in the History Museum. Spending an extra day here means you’ll get to discover Sighisoara at night. It's calm and quiet after many of the travelers have moved on. You could cover the sights in a few hours. But Sighisoara is an excellent place to have some relaxing down time. Why not stay here overnight between visits of Brasov, Sibiu, Bucharest and other great Romanian cities.
