Sighisoara, Romania: An Absolute Dream

The third week has been successfully finished! I am posting a day later than usual because I went to the city of Sighisoara, Romania today and I wanted to write about my experiences there. For some background knowledge, Sighisoara is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s in the Transylvania region and was home to many Saxon’s. The Saxon architecture can still be seen today. This city is also the birthplace of Vlad Tepes, or more commonly known as Vlad The Impaler.

My roommates and I decided to travel together. Sighisoara is about an hour train ride from our hotel in Odorheiu Secuiesc. We spent a total of ten hours walking around and site seeing everything we could in one day. The amount of walking we did today was a personal record for me. My feet and legs are going to be so sore tomorrow! The cobblestone sidewalks and streets were very pretty but MAN were they tough to maneuver in. I had to constantly watch where I stepped in order to avoid twisting an ankle! It was so worth it, though. The places I got to visit are things that I am going to remember for the rest of my life. We went to the Church on the Hill, The Clock Tower, The Torture Museum, The Monastery Church, and this cute restaurant that was themed after Dracula. One thing that I really enjoyed was the ground level distance all around the city. There were a lot of high hills and when you made it to the top of them the view would be absolutely breathtaking. You got to take in all the different colors of the building at once and see how they contrasted with each other. It was a day I’ll never forget.

 If there is one place I would recommend people visit at least once in there life, it would be Sighisoara, Romania.
