It's a big square filled mostly with restaurants and cafés. A good place to find something to eat/drink or to walk through. Otherwise there is not much to do except when there is a festival/concert/etc. going on at that moment.

Lovely medieval town with a charming Large Square! This would definitely be the starting point of visiting the town center followed by museums, Small Square, Huet square .....

If you come in SIbiu, you shouldn't miss the big square. It reminds me a bit of the big cities in Western Europe. There are a lot of things to do here.

There was a music festival on during our visit, so we did not see the square under normal conditions. However, it was typically Romania, with some cafes around the sides, with the major tourist information on one side.

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!
