Tourists In The Medieval Citadel Of Sighisoara In Winter

This shot was captured in 2014 on a cold December afternoon. Back then, I saw a lot of tourists visiting the medieval citadel of Sighisoara despite that outside was very cold and it started to snow. Now, in the background of this photo is the Clock Tower which is one of the old medieval citadel’s most popular building. On the right side, in that yellow building the legend says that Dracula was born there. Now over there you will find a nice restaurant.

Sighisoara Clock Tower

This 64 m tall building is considered the landmark of Sighisoara. This defence tower received its name from the large clock located right under the observation gallery. Under the Clock Tower you will find the main entrance into the old inhabited medieval citadel. Also the torture room is located right under the tower. Today the Clock Tower is a history museum. Inside the museum you’ll see many interesting medieval items.

A Street In The Medieval Citadel Of Sighisoara

This street is located in the medieval citadel of Sighisoara, near the Citadel square. This street is called the School street because this will take you directly to the Joseph Haltrich high school. At the end of this street you will find the old covered stairways which will lead you to the Joseph Haltrich high school and to the Church on the Hill. By the way, if you take a closer look at the photo below, you will notice the famous the House with Stag (that white building on the left side).

Sighisoara At Sunset

I always wanted to capture an amazing sunset over the medieval citadel of Sighisoara. On my last trip there, I managed to capture some sunset photos of the citadel because we were walking in the area as the sun started to set. In the background of the photo you can see the entire medieval citadel including the well-known Clock tower which is not only the main entrance into the citadel but its also the most famous building in Sighisoara.

The Medieval Citadel Of Sighisoara At Sunset

This shot was captured this summer in the Transylvanian city of Sighisoara right before the sun started slowly to set. As you can see, I have decided to amplify the sunset a little bit and also I’ve made the photo more warmer.
