In last few days I was asked about the best places to visit in Romania quite few times. It looks like more people found out how beautiful destination it is and plan to go there which I’m really happy about. This country was the first one of the so called “dangerous” list that I visited solo yet I felt safer than in let’s say England there.I arrived to Sighisoara one misty October evening after 10 hours train ride from Budapest. I couldn’t say what my first impression was as the mist was so big I could only see few steps ahead and my hostel was located just 2 minutes away from the train station. I try to avoid walking alone in the evening in new places so I left exploring the city for the next morning.
Visiting Sighisoara, Romania
When I woke up the mist was more or less the same but I didn’t mind that. It gave the town an mysterious yet a little bit scary feel, so perfect for Transylvania region I was in. The town dates back to XII century and is full of important buildings and monuments such as the Clock Tower, Covered Staircase or the house where the famous Vlad Dracul was born. It is also listed on UNESCO World Heritage List as a great example of medieval yet still inhabited Citadel.

The old town looks like from a fairy tale. Colorful houses, narrow streets, arches between buildings… and all of these looks like from hundreds years ago. Visiting Sighisoara is like stepping back in time and it’s a really pleasant journey. It’s incredible how beautiful and adorable this town can be. And if you’re lucky with weather and experience a mist hovering over Sighisoara there is no other way but falling big time for this adorable Transylvanian town… I know I’ll come back there eventually…
