In the heart of Transylvania the Sighisoara Medieval Festival turns clocks back 750 years, to when orders of medieval knights roamed Europe on the way back from the Crusades. Concerts, fireworks, chivalry tournaments and archery combine for a three-day medieval extravaganza.
It's by far the largest medieval festival in Romania and fills the whole of the attractive medieval walled town, with events taking place in the evocatively titled squares - Knight's, Little Knight's, Troubadour's, Pilgrim's and Mercenaries', plus the Chronicler's House and Blacksmith's Tower. Each night ends with a torchlit parade, on Friday and Sunday at 11pm but on Saturday at 1am (really Sunday morning) and the ever-popular fireworks.
