In the heart of Transylvania lies a small medieval village, with a citadel built on top of a hill.
The summer months are full of festivals in Sighisoara – the most important being the Medieval festival at the end of July, which lasts for 2 days.
When we went in May, we met in the square a young boy dressed in medieval clothes named Paul, who gave us tips and even a full Sighisoara tour for a moderate sum. Some of the pictures posted here are from my most recent trip…
While in Sighisoara – you can visit the neighboring Biertan village, which is 30 km away. You have to book a guided trip or rent a car though, as there are no direct means of transportation to the village yet.
