Memories from the Old Town of Sighisoara

Sighisoara, the magnificent small town which lies in the heart of Transylvania, is famous worldwide for its well-preserved historic center; a walk down the narrow cobbled streets of its old town is a great opportunity to detach yourself for a while from the present and imagine what it was like to live and work in this citadel several centuries ago.

I have been in Sighisoara on a few occasions so far, and unfortunately, I have never had the chance to explore it thoroughly, which means that there are plenty of things left to discover and old buildings to explore on my future visits. One day I will return to that World Heritage site and hopefully, I will immerse myself in its history and culture for a longer period. Until then I have the pictures to remind me of my brief visits to Sighisoara and some of the unforgettable sites I have seen, such as:

– the magnificent 64-meter high Clock Tower built in the 14th century, which has a history museum inside and from where you can admire a panoramic view of the whole town;

-the Citadel Square where you can admire several beautiful old houses, such as the Stag House, which is considered to be the preserved old house in Sighisoara;

the covered staircase, also known as the Scholars’ Staircase which leads to the top of a hill where you can find a school and the Church On the Hill, built on the location of a Roman fort.

These are only a few of the wonderful sights which I could admire in the old town of Sighisoara; once you visit this unique place, you will always long for a chance to return to it one day!
