Sighisoara is a medieval city where you can still feel such atmosphere. Easily, you can imagine how people lived (and in some case are still living) there a few centuries ago.
Vlad Tepes was born there, in one of the central houses (today is a restaurant),
however the main touristy attraction is its old medieval tower from which you have a good sight of Sighisoara.
To be honest, Sighisoara was a little bit disappointing… the city, streets, houses, all was nice but, maybe after my readings about it, I expected a little bit more (I don't know how to explain). Anyway, it not a bad place at all and I'm fully happy of my visit.
Once finished our sightseeing in Sighisoara, we drove again with painted monasteries of Moldova in our mind. After several hours driving crossing lots of towns and also Targu Mures (we didn't stop but I can explain that suburbs were incredibly sad, I guess downtown is better) we arrived at Bistrita where we stayed on Tuesday night just to sleep a little and continue our voyage towards painted monasteries on Wednesday morning. I can remember how dangerous was to drive at night in those roads full of surprises (carriage without lights, people, animals, big pot holes, road works…) , fortunately nothing bad happened!!
BISTRITA: Nothing to do. Nobody between 20-40 because everybody is working abroad!! After 11pm only a few gipsy youngs (10-15) cleaning the streets. Generally speaking, they are not friendly, however we found a nice owner of a doner-kebap (argentinian-speaker) who explained us tons of things about Romania and Bistrita's region.
