Sighisoara & Sibiu old town, Romania/ 锡吉什瓦拉 & 锡比乌老城,罗马尼亚

A true gem of a town, Sighisoara’s best known resident may well be Dracula but leave the legend behind and you’ll discover one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. The center of Sighisoara, with its cobbled streets, towers and burgher houses is best explored on foot. Also make sure to enjoy the view from the Clock Tower and climb up the Scholar’s Stairs. Built in 1642, this covered staircase was built to protect schoolchildren and churchgoers on their winter climb to study or pray. As a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, you’ll find there’s much to discover from the Church on the Hill with its 500-year-old frescoes to the Church of the Dominican Monastery, known for its renaissance carved altarpiece, baroque pulpit and 17th century organ. Although you could cover the main sites in the city in a few hours, Sighisoara is an excellent place to have some relaxing down time and staying overnight means you’ll experience it at calm and quiet at night, after the day-trippers have gone.
