The Strada Scolii, or Student Street, wends up to the hilltop school. You can probably guess that the citadel is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Has been since 1999. You're not likely to learn without digging a bit that the Nazis took over the school, as they did throughout the region. Was the town unhappy about this? Don't bet on it. The residents at that time were mostly Saxon, which is to say German, and they were bitter about Transylvania being assigned to Romania after World War I.
