The UNESCO World Heritage Site is the last inhabited medieval citadel in Eastern Europe, one of seven walled cities (collectively, the seven fortified medieval cities were called ‘Siebenburgen’; Sighisoara was known as Castrum Sex, Fort Six) originally founded by the Saxons in Transylvania in the 12th century.
