Postcards from Romania
Sighisoara
The Clock Tower, formerly the main entrance to the fortified city, was raised in the 14th century. The tower is 64m tall with sturdy base walls measuring an impenetrable 2.35m. Inside the 1648 clock is a pageant of figurines, each representing a character from Saxon panthom: Peace bears an olive branch, Justice has a set of scales and Law handles a sword.
