The Saxon influence over Sighisoara
The history of this town stems back in the 1100s. Back then, the Hungarian overlords had asked Saxons to relocate here in order to defend the borders. A lot of them accepted. That’s why, even today, we can see the influence of their work everyhwere. The Saxons were German-born craftspeople and merchants. The purpose was to defend vulnerable mountain passes from the Tatar and the Ottoman invasions. The Sighisoara Cultural Tour will show and tell you everything about the history of the place. Later in time, more artisans followed. Soon, Sighisoara became home to not less than 15 trade guilds. Those craftsmen also built a set of mighty towers.
