Here is an unusual concentration of medieval architecture in a relatively narrow space, located on Citadel’s Hill. Now it stands as one of the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval fortresses in S-E of Europe. Mentioned in a document for the first time in 1298, Sighisoara is actually a burg, a walled town. The wall was built in the 14th century, with a height of between 4 and 14 meters, having in place defensive towers belonging to various handicraft guilds. Of the 14 towers originally built today only 9 remain, the most important is the Clock Tower, with 7 figurines representing the days of the week, which is today the symbol of Sighisoara.
Few cities in the world have preserved valuable ancient architectural core like Sighisoara, this is one of the reasons why is strongly recommended to visit this magnificent destination in Romania.
Viscri Fortified Church
Fortified Church from Viscri was built in the 13th century over an old chapel from the 12th century. The evangelical romanesque church has a fortified enclosure with a defensive way two towers, two bastions. The entire village is exactly in the original shape without is part of the UNESCO world heritage, here we find a very interesting ethnographic museum where we can explore the country life of Saxons from Transylvania.
Prejmer Fortified Church
Prejmer village is situated in the Burzenland (Țara Bârsei) in a flat marshy area at approx. 18 km from Brasov. Primary colonization settlement, documented in 1213, Prejmer founded, by tradition, by the Order of the Teutonic Knights. Following the chase of the Knights from Burzenland in 1225 by the Hungarian King Andrew II, the town passed under the patronage of the Cistercian monks of Cârţa (Kerz).
The center of gravity of the settlements is the market, with the most important construction, the Evangelical Church. Surrounded by a powerful oval-shaped defensive wall with five cracked towers, doubled by a defense wall and moat. The enclosure includes commission rooms, parochial house, school, wells and a cemetery. Prejmer became the strongest stronghold in the southeastern rural environment of Europe.
Nowadays is a UNESCO World Heritage monument, Prejmer Fortified Church has the oldest triptych altar in Transylvania, dating from 1450. This fortified church was never conquered by the enemies, today it has the gates wide open for tourists and I would be glad to show you this well-preserved fortified church.
