... continuing our walk through the tiny cobblestone streets was cut short by relentless rainfall, so our night ended with another underpriced, oversized meal at the local pub. Side note: Having experienced Romanian music on the radio and watched the video clips on "Romanian MTV" a few times now, I can truly say it is quite unique.

Anyway, Sighisoara was possibly built by Saxons in the 12th century (I say "probably" because I don't remember), invited to the region by the King of Hungary (fact).
