City became Romanian only after the First World War. It was founded by the German colonists. They also built in 1556 the main attraction - the clock tower. In the Middle Ages here were located the Municipality, the court and the archive.

Unlike other mythical places in Romania associated with Dracula, here is a real house where Vlad Tepes was born. It is located behind the clock tower.

A long covered Scholar's stairs lead to the top of the hill. Earlier there were fortifications, but now there is nothing left. There is only an old cemetery, a church and a lyceum which gave the name to the stairs.

Not finding beautiful views at the top of the hill, we climbed the nearest mountain.
