If I had to name a list of places in the world that really look like they were plucked straight out of medieval times, I’d have to put Sighisoara somewhere at the top! This incredible little town in Transylvania is a splash of colour and one of the best examples of a medieval town in the world. Its winding streets, lovely squares and gorgeous little churches and towers will transport you to another world. :)
Sighisoara City Break
I’ve put together a deal using Trivago and my Flight Finder which gives you 3 nights to explore Sighisoara and the surrounding region. You’ve got flights to Cluj-Napoca which is about 2 1/3 hours by car, but if you don’t fancy driving in Romania then there are also train connections which you could consider (they’re pretty cheap too!).
You’ll be staying at the Mercure Sighisoara Binderbubi, which enjoys a super central location and plenty of fantastic amenities such as an on-site spa and restaurant!
The town is full of traditional structures and fortifications, but what I really love are all the towers and city gates that make up part of the old defences. Some of them even date back to the 11th and 12th century so it really is breathtaking how much history has been preserved here. And if you dare, you could even plan a day trip to Brasov. Sighisoara is said to be the birthplace of Dracula, but it’s in Brasov where you’ll find his fabled abode, the beautiful Bran Castle. But don’t worry – talking about vampires sounds like gruesome stuff but you’ll actually find that Transylvania as a whole is super idyllic!
