Sighisoara, Romania - Old defense tower. We have visited Sighisoara in September 2007 but it took me a long time to actually post pictures from our trip. We loved Sighisoara, even though they were still doing lots of building and fixing up. The old fortress on the hill is the main attraction but even the city at the bottom of the hill is very nice to stroll through.

Sighisoara, Romania is unique in Europe.

The old fortress, on top of the hill is unique in Europe, being the oldest fortress where people still live and work. Yes, there are quite a few people living within fortress walls.

It’s true, there is a high school, two churches, a cemetery and on top of it all, Sighisoara City Hall is right within the old walls of the fortress. The whole fortress is very well preserved and it makes for a great tourist attraction.
