Always worth a visit on every trip. Enjoy the summer sun and the winter snow as well as the Xmas markets and many other events they hold here. Ignore the star bucks and support the local businesses.

The old buildings are renovated and look nice and you can stay and enjoy the projections for Christmas and the lights. In the summer you can stay and think about good things without noise. Right there is the Tower and bridge of lies

The big square in Sibiu makes you to go back in time. Is so romantic. Have walking area, shops, bars and restaurants. The Christmas market was fantastic. Local food, sweets and boiled wine. I can stay there a life time 😁😁.
