I walked for three days and I would still have done it if I hadn't left. Very interesting houses with roof windows-the eyes.

A great well preserved area of the city with historical buildings inside the old fortress protecting the city from invaders. Lots of restaurants, stores and historic places/monuments. A must explore while in Sibiu.

Very beautiful old city well preserved. We enjoyed our walk there with many medeval buildings. Many cafes and restaurants also, especially during summer season, on February, our last visit, many of them were closed.

Great Old German city
Feb 2020
It's really enjoyable to take a leisurely walk around the old German/Saxon part of the town. Much of it being restored.

Nice area to walk around
Oct 2019
We loved the old town and all of the adjoining squares. The shopping district is right off the main square with plenty of food too. We loved the "eyes" on the buildings watching us.

The "EYE"s are watching you!!
Jun 2019
Sibiu, Romania is a lovely Eastern European town much similar to some of the Western European towns we love so much. As in some architectural buildings elsewhere, here and there you see arched, or eyebrow windows mostly in roofs, but in Sibiu, they are everywhere you look. The word there is the "eyes" are watching you. It is an interesting story about why so many of those eyes abound in this wonderful, architecturally delightful town. When you go, be sure to hear the story there from the locals or from your guide if you are traveling with one. Enjoyed Sibiu, hope you do too.

Excellent - always a pleasure to walk in Sibiu
Jul 2019
Sibiu is one of those cities of Romania that during the communist era did not lose the old building the german built city survived mostly intact in terms of what is concerning the Old Town area.
It is one of the nicest cities to walk with a lot of medieval buildings - a lot of small side streets and landmarks at every corner - so many that is almost impossible to list everything you will see.
But here are some of the places you shall include:
- the 2 iconic streets of Sibiu - Nicolae Balcescu and the Cetatii/Fortress street.
- Big and Small square - each of them with their own landmarks.
- Brukenthal museum
- the Cathedrals of Sibiu - Orthodox , Catholic, etc.
- the Christmas fair - that every year is being held in the big square of the city.
- some of the cafes and restaurants - to immerse a bit in the local cuisine.
And of course there is much more to it and every time you visit this beautiful city of Romania you will discover something more than last time.
It is excellent that is for sure - so I do recommend when you have the opportunity go see Sibiu for yourself.
