Sighișoara is a fine example of a small, fortified medieval town. I didn't need to do any research on this card because Andrås told me about this part of the World Heritage Site - "Sighișoara is located in the middle of the Transylvanian plateau. You can see here the clock tower, the castle, some very old houses - all are situated in the medieval citadel, which is the only inhabited medieval castle in the whole of Eastern Europe. Built by German Saxons today it is a very famous Romanian tourist attraction."

Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
