This is a very pleasant open plaza with a lot of walking traffic between restaurants and shops in the center of Sibiu tour center. You will walk through it many times when going about and admire the buildings and architecture, see the pigeons, people watch, and head on your way.

This square is very large, similar to other European cities (like Brussels). Many events are held in the square, specially the Christmas market during winter. It also has cool buildigs surrounding it.

The Big Square is the center of the Old Town in Sibiu and a trip to this city is not a trip withut seeing this square and the beautiful buildings around, including the famous Turnul Sfatului. I've visited before Christmas and it was a decent Christmas Market taking place there.

During our visit to Sibiu, we have entered the square on many occasions. We find the beauty of the architecture of the old buildings come alive at night under lights, definitely a must see. Remember to drop into the tourist centre located in the square and collect a map, that has a guide to a walk through the historic centre... More

This is the place in the middle of the old town of Sibiu, where all the important cultural events take place. During the summer, every week a festival or an exhbition is here.

I heard a lot of good impressions about it and were true. I came with my family in the middle of protests...but the vibe of the people gave it life. This place is a great walking option. You will be amazed by the architecture and heartwarming citizens.Go visit it!

Sibiu is a little different, when you're here you'll probably feel like in other country, like Austria, probably. The Big Square is beautiful, clean, the atmosphere is nice and cozy. There are restaurants and shops for every taste, there are events from time to time and it's very close to other tourist attractions. It's a place worth visiting or coming... More
