Postcards from Romania
Sighisoara
Sighisoara sheltered and supported Vlad Dracul in his attempt to get to the Wallachia throne, which he secured in 1436 and moved his family to the court at Targoviste. During this period the Romanian name of the town appears in documents for the first time.
Nowadays, Vlad's birthplace, complete with its original river stone floor, contains a beer bar and restaurant.
