The city of Sighisoara, hailed as „the most beautiful and well kept fortified town in Transylvania”, is situated in the center of Romania, at the crossroads of important commercial roads. Its location made the town an important commercial, handicrafts, administrative and cultural center. Nowadays all these are supplemented by its importance as a tourism center - the city hosts the best kept medieval citadel and is also a starting point for outings in its environs. 

Sighisoara, an authentic museum city offers the modern visitor the chance to a journey back in time. Since 1999 Sighişoara was put on the list of UNESCO World Heritage, being considered the best example of Transylvania and Central Europe.

Sighisoara’s main touristic attraction is the Medieval Citadel, with well preserved towers, bastions, churches and houses.  The Clock Tower is the main entrance to the citadel, opposite the Tailor’s Tower. It gained its name thanks to its clock with figurines, unique to Romania. The Clock Tower constitutes a symbolic image of Sighisoara and unlike other towers, built by different guilds, it belonged to the whole community, being the house of the Council. Nowadays, the Clock Tower is housing the History Museum of Sighisoara Municipality.
