As I promised in my article about Brasov, I'm gonna post some photos took in Sighisoara.
Returning home from Brasov, we made a stop in the old city Sighisoara, situated in Transylvania, on Tarnava Mare River, in Mures County Romania.
"Sighișoara is considered to be the most beautiful and well preserved inhabited citadel in Europe, with authentic medieval architecture. In Eastern Europe, Sighișoara is one of the few fortified towns that are still inhabited. The town is made up of two parts. The medieval stronghold was built on top of a hill and is known as the "Citadel" (Cetate). The lower town lies in the valley of Târnava Mare river.
The houses inside Sighișoara Citadel show the main features of a craftsmen's town. However, there are some houses that belonged to the former patriciate, like the Venetian House and the House with Antlers.
In 2001-2003 the construction of a Dracula theme park in the 'Breite' nature preserve near Sighișoara was considered but ultimately rejected, owing to the strong opposition of local civil society groups and national and international media as well as politically influential persons, as the theme park would have detracted from the medieval style of the city and would have destroyed the nature preserve."(Wikipedia)
Enjoy the photos and maybe one day, you will visit this wonderful place, which will take you back in time and fill you with good energy. It's strange that even the road is so close by the citadel, the cars noises don't get inside.
Till next time.....Live Your Life in the Rhythm of Music!!!!
