Few Romanian cities are as pleasant as
Sibiu. Due to its more than 800 years of history and
the world heritage that are held here, Sibiu has been
chosen the European Cultural Capital in 2007, an honor who was
shared with Luxembourg.
Our tour will focus in presenting the historical and cultural
Sibiu, but also the city of today. Along the centuries,
the town opened its gates to the world and became home for people
of many cultures, speaking different languages and practicing
different forms of religion. Sibiu (Hermannstadt for
the German minority) with its different ethnic communities developed
a unique multicultural life. That's why the theme chosen for
the cultural program of the city for 2007 is "city of culture,
city of cultures"
Sibiu has one of the best-preserved, medieval city centers
in Europe built by the German settlers in Gothic sturdiness.
Today, old Sibiu still possesses much of its erstwhile charm.
The city has two easily walk able levels: the 'upper town',
which contains most of Sibiu's historic sights, and the 'lower
tower', which is a charming wasteland of old houses and cobbled
squares. Connecting the upper and lower towns are dozens of
tunnels, stairways and hidden passageways which will lets you
The Large Square is the historic center of Sibiu, first time
mentioned in 1411 as corn market. The public executions and
public meetings used to be held here. It marks the heart of
the city. Its home to shops, cafes and some top tourist attractions.
The Small Square is the second largest historic place of Sibiu
and one of the most beautiful squares in town. Dominated by
the Evangelical Church, The Huet Square is surrounded by medieval
gothic buildings. It is the oldest from the three main squares
of the city.
Sibiu has the largest concentration of tourist attractions
in Romania. In Sibiu alone are over 100 attractions of national
importance and together with the surrounding area the points
of interest exceed 140.
Here you can find The Brukental Museum, the oldest in Romania
and the second museum ever founded in Europe, which was opened
to the public in 1817. Brukenthal Museum is a complex of six
museums which, without being separate administrative entity,
have different locations and their own distinct cultural programs.
Sibiu is beautiful; indeed a delight for the eyes!
The Museum of painted icons on glass from Sibiel is the largest
of this type in Europe. Situated in the courtyard of the 18th
century Orthodox Church the museum has a collection of extraordinary
icons, some of them 300 years old. It was organized beginning
with 1968, due to the efforts of Zosim Oancea, the priest of
the village who encouraged the peasants to donate and create
icons for the museums.
