This is Sighişoara, an UNESCO World Heritage site.
Founded by German craftsmen and merchants known as the Saxons of Transylvania, Sighişoara is a small, fortified medieval town which played an important strategic and commercial role on the fringes of central Europe for several centuries.
Sighişoara is an outstanding example of a city situated at the border region between the Latin-oriented culture of central Europe and the Byzantine-Orthodox culture of south-eastern Europe.
It is an brilliant testimony to the culture of the Transylvanian Saxons, a culture that is coming to a close after 850 years and will continue to exist only through its architectural and urban monuments.
