Located within close walking distance of nearby hotels the big square is capable of holding various outdoor events. Our Sunday visit had many of the local residents enjoying a warm day and the quite peaceful surroundings.

Big, clean and with loads of beautiful restored buildings. Plenty of restaurants but also verry crowded in the summer months.

Lovely square in the beautiful old town. We would definitely come back to Sibiu. There appears to be regular events in the square. The Germanic architecture is superb.

A really lovely Square with a plethora of beautiful buildings. The effect was marred for us by the huge marquee set up for a festival. Still wonderful....

As with many of the Saxon towns in Romania, the Big Square is lovely and fun to stroll and admire. Great architecture at every turn.

This square is idyllic, its is a very large square with historic buildings, churches, cafes, bars and restaurants. The area is mainly pedestrian with selected vehicles being allowed access. This is a very relaxing place to spend some 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!
