Wonderful place, full of light and tradition. A lot of colors and a great Christmas Market. One of the top attraction in Sibiu. Totally delighted by the Christmas decorations. Taste the Romanian typical products and enjoy the magical Christamas Tree

All the square is full with the Christmas market. Very well organised and clean. There are a lot of Romanian typical products. For the cold days I recommend the mulled wine.

Loved the plaza! We brought notebooks and sat and made sketches and just watched the people and pigeons and it was one of the highlights of our trip!

Really a good square to walk around, enjoy the scenaries, and get some food which is not over crowded There are many beautiful buildings around. I felt this is a place to spent on cold season.
