Full description
Designated as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, this perfectly intact 16th century gem with nine towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses and ornate churches rivals the historic streets of Old Prague or Vienna for atmospheric magic.

It is also the birthplace of Vlad Dracula, also known as Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler), ruler of the province of Walachia from 1456 to 1462. It was he who inspired Bram Stoker's fictional creation, Count Dracula.

Our info said meet near the clock at 4. We were there but couldn't find Peter. After 10 to 15 minutes we asked a man standing up the road near the church if he was the guide and he was. The guide was terrific with great knowledge of Romanian history and was able to explain the complexity of historical events. He pointed out the key buildings and how leaders led to advances in education health,literacy and society. A very interesting tour with a guide who blended history and contemporary developments.
