Length of visit: 1/2 day
The birthplace of Vlad Dracul – Dracula – Sighișoara has become a tourist destination in its own right. We stopped through this town during the day, then continued on the train afterward.
All in all, it’s very walkable from Old Town to the train station, and it’s got some gems, like the clock tower, which has a fantastic little cuckoo clock.
You’ll get beautiful views of the Church on the Hill, as well. Definitely consider stopping through Sighișoara on your trip to Romania, but consider dedicating more time to other towns and cities, like Sibiu and Brașov.
