Piata Mare is on everyone's sight list, for good reason. There are lots of restaurants, places to sit and people watch and usually an exhibit our outdoor show. Walk the streets off the main square for a more local feel.

the main square of Sibiu, Piata Mare, is a very attractive place with restaurants etc. around the outside and the buildings are quite beautiful. At night the buildings in the square are lit up and are transformed.

A very nice place to walk and discover old and new things! Museums, churches and eateries all in a plaza, under the watch of the historic tower.

We love these central squares that are found through out Europe. This ones charm in our opinion is that it is not completely filled with outdoor seating for restaurants. You get to see the surrounding buildings with out the clutter.

Wonderfully large open square bordered by architecturally beautiful buildings. Ample outdoor restaurants available to have a meal and people watch. A very pleasant place to spend a couple hours during your visit to Sibiu.

From walking around to people watching, a good place overall. Lots of little corners to discover and many food places to pick from. Anywhere from a coffee shop to a pretzel or donut shop. Relaxing and lively atmosphere at the same time.

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!
