Trip Planner: Europe / Romania / Transylvania / Central Romania / Mures County / Sighisoara / Sighisoara Clock Tower
Climb to the wooden balcony at the top of Sighisoara Clock Tower for panoramic views of the town. On your way up, peek into the mechanism of the clock, which rotates the painted wooden figurines of pagan gods personifying the days of the week. The tower was built as part of the city's defense system in the 14th century and used to control the main gate of the citadel. The four corner turrets symbolize the town's judicial autonomy. The roof of the tower gained its present Baroque form after a fire in 1676. The tower, which once stored the city's treasures, today houses its history museum.

Great experience. Interesting rooms inside with different stories while climbing to the top. The view from the top is amazing. Worth visiting.
Beautiful location, nice panorama on the city. Should you have time, visit the city during spring or autumn with less tourists. It is far different.
