The center was renovated around 2008 and it still looks very good. The square is large and romantic. You can park directly here so you get to the restaurants and the main shopping street very fast. We enjoyed a nice dinner on the terrase.

The square has been well restored and has the town hall with information bureau, plus one of the three cathedrals. Good German bookshop and a number of restaurants. A fountain for the children.

From here was started our wonderful European trip. The perfect start - it was pleasure for us to drink coffee in the morning at this square.

When you visit Sibiu, you automatically arrive here. Some of the most important buildings in the city are to be found here, as well as the tourist office. Also a lot of restaurant and café terraces to enjoy. Thou shalt not go hungry in Rumania!

We visited in June and I lost all my beautiful photos of Sibiu because of a corrupted memory card. If you have any JPEG photos you could send me, it would be most appreciated. I would like to add a few to my photo album. Thanks so much!

Hi. Unfortunately, at this moment I do not have any photos. But I will keep in mind your request. I hope in the future I will be able to help you. Have a nice day.
Hi, I will be visiting Sibiu between 11th - 14th July. Am looking for recommendations regarding markets / fairs selling local art / crafts / food items. Or any flea markets being held during those dates. Some way to soak in the local culture and also be able to buy some nice souvenirs for back home. TIA!

Hi, unfortunately i am not from Sibiu and don't know what markets/ fairs are organized in that period. You might want to ask someone who is from that area. Have fun & hope you enjoy our country!
