You will climb lots of steel stairs placed in the middle of the tower, being able to see 360 degrees around them, inside the tower, up and down, with wind blowing from all the sides. However, the thrilling experience will be when you get to the top of the tower, under the pointy roof. There you hear the wind blowing... More

Beautiful Gothic architecture, I only got the chance to see it from outside, but very interesting details.

Situated in Huet Square, this beautiful Gothic cathedral is dedicated to Saint Mary. Built in 1371 on the site of a 12th century Roman Basilica, it is home to Romania's largest organ and a number of beautiful frescoes. The views from the tower are equaled only by the ones from the The Tower of the Council (Turnul Sfatului).

I loved the arhitecture, the church is very large. Unfortunately when I was visiting it was under renovation and I could't get inside. Near the cathedral is a very nice terrace.

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.
