Tourists travelling in Europe should know that Romania is now included on the Eurail Pass. If you don’t have a pass, single journey and round trip tickets are generally cheaper if purchased in Europe and not in the U.S. Up-to-date train schedules can be found at www.bahn.de
Sighisoara is on the main route E60 across Romania, from Bucharest to the Hungarian Border near Oradea. On arrival in Sighisoara you will see the medieval citadel on the top of a hill. In the town centre is a major intersection with a traffic light. If you are coming from the west you turn right at this light. If you are coming from the east, it is the second traffic light you will come to after entering the town, and you need to turn to the left. Immediately after turning at the light you take a sharp left onto a road going slightly uphill. This is Strada Horea Teculescu. The Veritas Centre, number 34-36, is on the right.
To find the House on the Rock, the Veritas education center and International Café, you have to go up into the citadel. Look for signs that say “Cetate”. There is parking on the main street of the town centre, or at the base of the citadel to the west of the main traffic light. House on the Rock is on the main square of the citadel.
