Photographer's Note

S醤dor Petőfi Square is located in the Romanian city of Sighisoara, in the center of the Transylvania region. It is a public space whose main figure is the monument to the most recognized Hungarian poet in history: Petőfi S醤dor. Born in 1823, S醤dor died in the Battle of Sighisoara fighting against the Imperial Russian Army after having written the revolutionary poet 揘emzeti Dal (揘ational Song in Hungarian language). Today, the figure of this poet is the national pride not only of Hungary, but also of Romania, Serbia and other neighboring nations.

On one side of the square is the Carpenters' Tower (or 揟urnul Cizmarilor in Romanian language). This is one of the many towers dedicated to trades in the region that were built during the 16th century in Sighisoara and today constitute the main tourist attractions of the city.


From the center of the S醤dor Petőfi square there are three streets that go to the Sighisoara Castle; All of them are perfectly postcard-worthy, with low pastel-colored houses and numerous cafes and small restaurants that attract both locals and tourists who decide to stop here in the middle of a trip through intriguing Transylvania.

La Plaza S醤dor Petőfi se encuentra en la ciudad rumana de Sighisoara, en el centro de la regi髇 de Transilvania. Se trata de un espacio p鷅lico cuya figura principal es el monumento al poeta h鷑garo m醩 reconocido de la historia: Petőfi S醤dor. Nacido en 1823, S醤dor muri en la Batalla de Sighisoara luchando en contra del Ej閞cito Imperial Ruso despu閟 de haber escrito el poeta revolucionario 揘emzeti Dal (揅anci髇 Nacional en idioma h鷑garo). Hoy en d韆, la figura de este poeta es orgullo nacional no solo de Hungr韆, sino tambi閚 de Ruman韆, Serbia y otras naciones vecinas.

A un costado de la plaza se encuentra la Torre de los Carpinteros (o 揟urnul Cizmarilor en idioma rumano). Esta es una de las numerosas torres dedicadas a oficios de la regi髇 que fueron construidas durante el Siglo XVI en Sighisoara y hoy en d韆 constituyen los principales atractivos tur韘ticos de la ciudad.


Desde el centro de la plaza S醤dor Petőfi parten tres calles que se dirigen al Castillo de Sighisoara; todas ellas son perfectamente dignas de una postal, con casitas bajas de colores pastel y numerosos caf閟 y peque駉s restaurantes que atraen tanto a locales como a los turistas que deciden parar aqu en medio de un viaje por la intrigante Transilvania.
