Ride to Sighisoara

Headed N to historical city of Sighisoara, part of UNESCO patrimony.
Sighisoara historic centre is the most beautifull and complete Medieval urban centre in Romania. The fortress dates since the 14th – 17th centuries - narrow streets, brick-made massive houses, a defence walls and towers belt. The most interesting tower – the Clock Tower or the Council’s Tower. Important monuments: the church of the monastery (the 13th – 15th centuries); Biserica din deal (the 14th – 16th century); the house where Vlad Dracul lived, and Vlat Tepes (the Impaler) was born.
Did not have time to visit, next time, had to get back early.
Few pics from the road.

Vlad Dracul was Vlat Tepes' (Dracula's) father.
Dracula (Tepes) was not drinking blood, he just punished thieves and enemies very hard by empalement.
Few info's here:

Again Sighisoara

Been there again, took the time to visit the old fortress, 500 years old. Some part of it is left untouched and looks really old, some buildings were restored. Here some pics. On the way back we met another K, which is very rare.
