The historic centre consists of two or three squares that are all very nice and quite different at the same time. We enjoyed most of Piata Mica which is very charming. Just below those squares there is Goldsmiths' square with many old houses which were...More

Sibiu has a wonderful old city centre where you can admire the beautiful buildings, churches & museums. Have a coffee at a cafe or a meal at a restaurant, cross the bridge of lies and shop at the handicrafts stalls. Lovely place.

The Old Town is definitely a place to visit while in Sibiu. The beautiful architecture of the buildings, the paved streets and the many local restaurants make this a pleasant place to visit.

The Old Town is a beautiful place with a spectacular view of the old surrounding buildings. This is considered to be Sibiu’s main attraction so its a must if you are planning to visit Sibiu.
