Nice but I don't know why it has not made WOW effect on me. Brasov and Sybiu were more interesting and no so empty during night. Restaurants and attractions I wouldn't call as a first class. It's just good to come here for two days.

Well worth the visit and better to stay a few nights and use it as a base. Stay inside the citadel for a true Middle Ages experience as they have great restaurants and b&b accommodations as well as hotels. Climb the Clock tower!

Spent a couple of nights in Sighisoara but you can easily cover the old town less than a day. Despite all the tourists the town appears to absorb them all without too much trouble. Everything you see is worth a photo but pictures don't do...More

While it's not one of the wonders of the world, the city center is beautiful and worth a day visit or weekend when the festival is held. The city center is well preserved and there is an unofficial competition between the inhabitants on who takes...More
