Today’s highlight: Sighisoara.
After breakfast, we will continue our trip to Sighisoara, which Vlad Tepes called home, one of the most beautiful towns in the heart of Transylvania. The whole medieval citadel is a part of UNESCO’s World Heritage. German architectural influences are visible throughout the entire city.
It is located on the Tarnava Mare river in a picturesque setting. The citadel, a beautifully preserved medieval complex, dominates the town with its hilltop setting. The old town enclosed within the citadel walls has narrow cobblestone streets and brightly painted 16th century Saxon houses. There are nine towers; the most beautiful is the striking Clock Tower, the main gate into the citadel.
From its balcony you can see the beautiful landscape over the whole town and countryside. You can take many pictures of the Clock Tower if you will look again you will see it looks like none is good enough and none looks as beautiful as the original in the afternoon light.
We have the possibility to enjoy a nice lunch on the terrace of Vlad Dracul’s House (Vlad the Davil's Home), the house where Vlad the Impaler was born in November or December 1431, today a famous restaurant. You can taste the famous Vampire wine and eat his favourite plate.
…visit the city of Brasov - where Vlad led raids against the German Saxons.
In the afternoon, we will admire the beautiful landscape, dotted with small villages, medieval citadels and fortified churches, on the way to Brasov. We will visit the medieval part of the city with: The Black Church, The Town Hall, The Black Tower, Ecaterina’s Gate and the Rope Street – the narrowest street in Europe.
