Today I visited Sighisoara Citadel, the historical centre of Sighisoara that was built in the 12th century and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also reported to be the birth place of Vlad Tepes, a.k.a. Vlad the Impaler – the inspiration for Dracula.
The Citadel is the old part of the town and is on a hill above the rest of Sighisoara. The old preserved medieval fortified town is still inhabited as well as being a popular tourist destination.
I’ll be leaving Sighisoara tomorrow and heading to the Sibiu/Brasov/Bran area of Transylvania. I haven’t decided where to stay yet, so I’ll be researching that this afternoon. There are some cool-looking castles to visit so I’ll probably pick a campsite as a base and drive out to see the sights.
