The exterior of the church is especially overwhelming, but the interior could be better. The church tower offers a very nice view of Sibiu.

A nice young guy guided me and told about the church and the tower, this was very good. You can visit the tower at, how do you say, for example at 2 o'clock or 3 o'clock etc., not on anytime you like or not on half past 2 or 3, because they need people to gather. If you have shopping... More

If you are one of those people who hates toured guides because they don't let you linger around, this is a great place to see. The cathedral is still in use and services are still officiated, as far as I can tell -- but more importantly, the restoration has been exemplary and most of the historical elements -- even the...

Impressive view of the old city and the surrounding mountains from the tower. The cathedral itself is one of the most beautiful gothic buildings in Transylvania and Eastern-Europe. I wish our guide had told us the history and the details of the cathedral, not just showing the way up in the tower. (for example, the city was first mentioned in... More

Even though is still under renovation (as far as i know), it's as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside, and they're doing a great job with the restoration project. It's also a place of serenity at night.

This is a must see in Sibiu it's unique style and surroundings are something to behold. It is basically massive, huge though delicate and detailed. I think it is emblematic for the city itself.

The Gothic church, a Lutheran Cathedral, is one of the most impressive sights in Sibiu. The old Romanesque church of St. Mary was extended by the Saxon population from 1325. Its 73 metres high tower, the highest in Sibiu, was finished in 1494. The tower has 4 turrets, indicating that the town had “ius gladiator:” i.e., it could execute criminals.... More

The building of this church started in the 14th century and the parish has certainly seen changes with the congregation falling from 14,000 at the beginning of the 20th century to only about 1400 now. Typically, for a protestant church, you have to pay (all of 5 lei) to visit, but it is worth it with some extraordinary wall decorations... More
