Very well preserved historical defence walls and towers of Sibiu. Nice area to walk in if you want to relax as it is near a park.

From the perspective of the fortifications of Sibiu - a little is left today still standing - much more than in Timisoara for instance - still worth taking a look and imagine how the fortifications of the most important Saxon city of Transylvania once looked like.
The Saxon colonized Transylvania stating from the 13th century upon the invitation of the Hungarian kings ... they brought with them a way of life, a will to work and a new standard ... in the 15th century Sibiu was already the most important town in Transylvania.
Now as per today from the fortress is not much left - but still the portion along the Corneliu Coposu Blvd is a definite must see ... a bit more degraded since my last visit , a bit more graffities but still beautiful .... when you are in Sibiu check these out will worth a few pics.

We had a fun day walking along the walls and seeing all of the towers. It is easy to walk the entire town in a day and get some n ice photos along the way.

Little si left from the medieval fortifications that once were protecting the mighty city of Sibiu. Times have changed, the ages passed and today only fragments of the fortress walls can be found.
Still if you are into history I would say you need to take a guided tour of the city and than you will be able to learn about the fortifications - how the system worked - how it got modernized during the habsburgs and what is left in the 21st century that you can still see for yourself.
Once more these wall sections (from the 2nd and 3rd wall of the city) are another landmark that you shall include in your Sibiu tour.

The walls are part of Sibiu's history and they now separate the old town from the modern city. The former medieval defence frotifications give Sibiu its charm and this is only the beginning of it!

The walk along Cetatii Street allows one to appreciate how the second and third defensive walls would have worked. Also very interesting that each of the towers was the responsibility of one of the occupational guilds eg Carpenters' and Gunsmiths' Towers.

Walking the fortress walls of Sibiu is very cool. Like something out of a movie. If you have extra time I would recommend a stroll.

Nice walk through a bit of history, great views of the city and some shadow during a hot summer day.
