In the evening we arrived at Sighisoara to accommodate.
Day 2: We start the day by discovering the only medieval fortress still inhabited in Europe: Sighisoara. Here we climb in the Clock Tower to see the entire city from the top, the house of Vlad Dracul (the father of Vlad Tepes), the Venetian House, the House with Deers, the Church on the Hill, the Covered Stairway.
One of seven fortified churches in Romania which are UNESCO heritage is in Viscri. We’ll understand why Prince Charles from England bought a house here.
A special fortress in on our way to Brasov city. Rupea Fortress is located on a hill, and its shape is like a snail shell.
The last stop is in Brasov city, to see the symbol of Gothic architecture in Romania, the Black Church. And then the narrowest street from here, the Rope Street and the main square of the old city: the Council Square. The Black Tower and the White Tower situated on the hill close to the centre of the city are the end of the journey.
