ROMANIA, SIGHISOARA,

Place of Towers.

SIGHISOARA is a city in Mures County Romania. A well preserved
walled town with many towers on the defence walls. The cobbled streets are centred around
the lovey Clocktower in the Citadel The Covered Staircase is a feature ,below the Church
and School on the hill. The staircase was built in 1619, so that people could reach
the school and church in winter. When i arrived at the bottom of staircase the scholars were
leaving school, so i waited till it cleared. ---------------- Sighisoara info says it is Romania's number one attraction, but in my view, Sibiu is a touch more interesting. ROMANIA,  SIGHISOARA  --  Rail  station, over  half  a  mile walk from  centre.
