Stepping On Sighisoara’s Cobblestone Pavers And Pathways

cobblestone pavers

If you are a person who loves to chase cobbled places… Sighisoara should be on your list. You’ll be awed with its cobbled pathways and cobblestone pavers. Aside from the cobblestone pavers, Sighisoara is another city not to be missed in Transylvania, Romania.

Why?

With its rich history from the medieval times, it holds absolutely stunning architectures, a stronghold citadel and even one of the few fortified settlement in Eastern Europe that is still inhabited.

The Sighisoara Citadel is located in an uphill. It is a cobbled place that can be explored in few hours. But the experience is more meaningful if you have enough time to sit around and relax, walk slowly and be amazed, climb to the top of the museum giving a better view to other parts of Sighisoara, hike up to the Scholar’s stairs and visit the Church on the Hill.

Another interesting fact about this place is that it is the birthplace of Vlad Tepes. With the winding cobbled pathways, you can go around without getting lost and yet in each corner are old and historic places. One of them is just where Vlad Tepes was born.

One of the rooms inside is where Vlad Tepes was born

But…

Don’t go alone to the room where Vlad was born. But if you really want to, listen to your instinct because, I am telling you now, you are not alone.

I’ve really had this crazy experience there. It’s been in my head that I am brave… Brave female solo traveler. But I was tested. There was no harm, of course. To think of it now, it was purely fun.

So I went alone… As I go up the stairs, the music background is that of like horror-movies, with few decor for Halloween. ย  I approached the door, the inside was dark with lighted candle only. But, I can’t just enter the room. I WAS AFRAID.

I went back to the entrance and requested somebody to go with me. Wrong decision. The one who accompanied me is an old man, with soooo fair complexion… Can you picture out a ghost, or some characters who just got out from his grave? Yes, I am paranoid but I can still remember how he looked like. He went ahead and was telling me… “Come…”

I was on my one and a half step to the room and I went back running while screaming. Even the phone on my hand flew…

For my third attempt, I had to phone my tour guide. I asked her to accompany me explore the room where Vlad Tepes was born. She came.

So what’s inside the room? It’s for you to find out. Don’t forget to tag with you somebody who screams the loudest… ย And have fun.

  • Sighisoara seems so awe-inspiring, Louiela! The architecture I’ve seen on your pictures has left me speechless. How many days would be enough to see all the highlights in Sighisoara?

      Hi Agness, thanks for dropping a message…

      I was on a day trip only to Sighisoara as I stayed in Brasov… It was enough to explore the Citadel as what I’ve posted above…

      However, if I can go back again, I would love to stay at least one night in Sighisoara so I can take a walk at the Citadel and on the second day is to take a walk on the lower Sighisoara which is the residential area (and I wasn’t able to do it.)

    Hi Louiela! These photos are extremely colorful and lovely – no touch of creepines at all. But I believe it when you said that you were afraid that made you run for our life. You usually do that when we were kids especially when we talk about creepy stories. Ikaw ang pinakapaspasa mudagan!๐Ÿ˜Š So, that hasn’t changed. There’s still that kid in you.๐Ÿ˜€
    Anyway, I love reading your blogs and being enchanted by your photos. Thank you for showing us the other side of the world hidden before our eyes.๐Ÿ˜Š
