The wonderful Transilvania area is home to this drop dead gorgeous town, a three hour train ride from Brasov.
Sighisoara is a walled fortress town dating from the 12th century. Skilled artisans from Germany were encouraged to relocate here and hence the town’s fine reputation for craftsmanship was established. It goes without saying that Sighisoara is UNESCO listed and with its brightly coloured medieval houses, a strong Saxon influence and birthplace of Dracula (Vlad the Impaler), it’s easy to see why it’s on the tourist trail.
