Old church in the historical centre of Sibiu.

A guide will tell you stories of the bath in side the church and four balconies at the top of the tower. Very interesting and a very peaceful church.

The Sibiu Lutheran Cathedral was built in the 14th century. It is a wonder of gothic style architecture. The inside also has a crypt of personalities, mayors, senators etc of the City. Climbing the tower, with an extra ticket, is challenging, but it is the best place to get a view of the whole city.

This is an interesting church with several burial carvings. The tower also offers great views of the city and mountains

Did you know that in this church was buried the son of Vlad Dracula? well check out the graves room in the church for the only grave that has a cross on it.

I entered this cathedral and liked it a lot, although didn't expect much. It has been renovated on the outside. I paid 8 ron the entrance including the tower and the annex-room. I went up, inside the tower and discovered a breath-taking landscape from each and every small window. Going up in the tower is not easy thing, especially for... More

Listened to Filarmonica de Stat Sibiu , 35 wonderful acapella voices resonating in a great vaulted space List of WW1 German war dead on the church wall echoed similar lists at home in Canada and the futility of war.

After paying an entrance fee, we were asked if we wanted a free tour. Yes! Then the young man asked if we wanted the quick tour and no, we want to see it all. And that we did. He took his time answering our many questions, in good English, and showing us the "must sees" as well as some of... More

Besides the fact that it's about 500 years old and well preserved, you get to climb up to the tower. Vertigo sufferers beware. Heart patients too. But once you get up there, the view from the tiny windows are worth it. There was one that could open while the others were nailed down. Good luck finding it. Now for the... More

Enjoyed the church and the fact that Vlad Draculea's son was buried there. The tower was worth the 110 steps to get there. Views were beautiful. Windows would open for the view to get pics. The bells still ring and are quite loud if you happen to be there when they go off.
