Sighişoara / Segesvár / Schäßburg / Castrum Sex

Sighişoara is small town in Transylvania which just like Braşov and Sibiu originally was a Saxon settlement. The German name for Transylvania is Siebenbürgen, "seven forts", and the Latin name indicates that this was the sixth of them. The historic centre of Sighişoara has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2001. The main draw is the fortified old town climbing the hill that is in the centre of town, and on the top of the hill is a fortified church.

In 1993, Sighişoara was my first stop in Romania, and at that time it was a very quiet place. I decided to come back in 2012, to see if things had changed. And, boy, they had!
