A great place!

A really beautiful place. We visited it while it was all covered in snow - really wonderful! A must while in Sibiu (you cannot miss it, even if you wanted to, I guess)!

Quite an atmospheric square in the middle of Sibiu! We were visiting around Easter time and there was a concert going on which was enjoyable to watch.

We did not plan New Year whatsoever: we just closed our eyes and chose a place on the map: Sibiu; and boy, it was an amszing choice!!! The old town is awesome: gives you a great friendly vibe, with plenty of things to do: museums, caffes, restaurants, old towers, churches etc. We enjoyed the Christmas market, with a breathtaking entourage,...

We visited the square shortly after Christmas. It's beautiful, the atmosphere is great, similar to that of a German/Austrian Christmas market. The square itself is also very beautiful architecturally.

We visited several times before Christmas and enjoyed every visit. Our young son can't get enough of the train and carousel and I can get enough of the fudge and mulled wine.
