This is an older photo taken a couple of years ago on a misty summer morning. Back then the medieval citadel of Sighisoara was pretty empty so it was much easier for me to shot some amazing images without people in them. If you walk down this street, you will end up next to the old Cobbler’s Tower and from there, you can actually take some interesting images of the Roman Catholic church.
A couple of years ago, right after Christmas we visited some relatives which happen to live in Sighisoara. Actually, for those who don’t know, this Transylvanian city if very famous in Romania due to its old inhabited medieval citadel. Back then, I have decided to walk up to the Church On The Hill and explore the area a little bit. Right behind the church, the old cemetery can be found and since I never been there before, I’ve decided to check out the place.

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.
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.
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).
