20 Photos That Will Make You Want to Travel to Sighisoara, Romania
Located in the historic region of Transylvania in Romania, Sighișoara is popular for its well preserved walled old town, which is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, and is considered to be one of the best-preserved medieval citadels in all of Europe. In 1999, the Historical Centre was officially inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and recognised as a relic of Transylvanian Saxon culture.
The first thing you will see as you start your walking tour of Sighișoara Old Town, is the pastel coloured buildings, and flowers in full bloom everywhere – by the windows and even at the entrance of the different houses.
The next thing you’ll notice is that the houses have eyes. See for yourself.
While it might be an easy task getting lost in the colourful streets of Sighișoara, did you know that the Birthplace of Vlad Tepes, a.k.a Count Dracula is in the Old town of Sighișoara! And guess what, you can eat a hearty meal in the restaurant which has now opened up in the bright yellow painted house. You can also pay an extra fee to be shown into young Vlad’s bedroom, which he slept in until the age of four.
What really grabbed my attention, as I was strolling along the cobbled stone lanes were the pastel coloured houses and buildings each having a unique character of its own. Some of the old houses have been renovated into AirBnB’s, quaint restaurants and cafes, such as Crama La Teo Sighișoara, which is a Homestay but also houses a cellar, and a distillery.
When I was exploring Sighișoara, back in July 2019, with a bunch of amazing content creators from around the World, as a part of the Experience Romania initiative, I happened to wander inside La Teo, as the entry looked so inviting.
As I entered, the first thing that I noticed were the flowers, which were everywhere.
While I was clicking these photos, the owner Teodor, came and introduced himself, and as one thing led to the other, he invited us for a free Palinka sampling session, in the cellar.
It was definitely one of the best palinka that I’ve had till now, and the spontaneous experience that we had at La Teo, turned out to be one of the highlights of my epic Trip to Romania.
While I only spent a few hours in Sighisoara, I realized that, only some places leave a long lasting impression on a traveller and this medieval town of Sighișoara în România, did exactly that.
