Still sick with some sort of cough, I opted to stay 2 nights in order to recovery. A very restful town.
The landmark of the city is the Clock Tower, a 64 meter high tower built in 1556. It is presently a Museum of History. …
Small figures appear in the window right of the clock each day.
The roof is the highlight for me.
There is some spooky stuff in the museum.
Scholar’s Staircase (“Scara Şcolarilor”) – an old stone staircase with a wooden roof along the whole span.
This leads up to the Church on the Hill, the cemetery and the Joseph Haltrich High School (a.k.a. “School from the Hill”).
A German friend told me this is the #1 tourist destination in Romania for Germans. And the majority of tourists here are Germans.
Is this Vlad the Impaler?
Nope. This is him.
