Halloween in Transylvania
Transylvania. The name itself is enough to send an icy chill down the spine of even the most fearless adventurer.
Most of Sighişoara's sights are clustered in the compact old town - the delightful medieval Citadel - perched on a hillock and fortified with a 14th-century wall, to which 14 towers and five artillery bastions were later added. Today the citadel, which is on the Unesco World Heritage list, retains just nine of its original towers (named for the guilds in charge of their upkeep) and two of its bastions.
You'll have more than a couple of chances to get Dracula t-shirts and locally made brandy these days.
