THE CITADEL FROZEN IN TIME
WHAT TO DO? MY JOURNEY
A colorful street in Sighisoara
The clock tower
Another colorful street
Sighisoara, the city of colors. Walking around the citadel is like jumping back in time with its old colorful houses. Take the covered stairs to reach the Monastery Church at the top of the small hill. I visited the clock tower to have a beautiful view of the city and also to see the exhibition and the history of the city on each floor. A good half-day is enough to visit the citadel and its museums.
Entrance price of the clock tower: lei 15 / € 3
AROUND THE CITADEL
A house outside the citadel
Holy Trinity Church
Sighisoara train station
I then strolled around the citadel to discover the city and not just stay at the tourist place. There is a beautiful church by the river, and several houses as colorful as in the citadel. The city is very calm.
I went to Sighisoara after Cluj-Napoca, and I was surprised to see all those colorful houses and this citadel. Very different from the first Romanian city I visited.
WHEN TO GO?
Months with a favorable weather to visit Sighisoara.
A maximum of one day is enough to go around the city. The citadel can be visited in a good half-day, and the surroundings in 2 hours.
WHERE TO SLEEP? MY ACCOMMODATION

A hostel in the center of the citadel, not expensive for the location. A good price-quality ratio. No safe box in my room.
MY 3 TIPS
- Do not plan to stay too long, it’s a small town
- They sell museum passes to visit all those in the city, which can be interesting
- Get lost in the small streets of the citadel
