Viscri -Daytrip, Sighisoara: 4 reviews and 6 photos

by msocolin

From Sighisoara we rented a car (with a driver luckily) to go to Viscri and other places. This place had been recommended to us by VT member Romanian_bat. It was the middle of winter, so there was a lot of snow and getting there was not that easy. There was no problem with the main road, but then to get to Viscri it was full of snow. Luckily we had a local driver who spoke romanian and could ask for directions and road conditions. The town was founded by saxons from Luxembourg I think in the 12th century. Many families still preserve their customs and language.
The main thing to see here is the old fortified church.

Address: Viscri
