Wonderfully large open square bordered by architecturally beautiful buildings. Ample outdoor restaurants available to have a meal and people watch. A very pleasant place to spend a couple hours during your visit to Sibiu.

From walking around to people watching, a good place overall. Lots of little corners to discover and many food places to pick from. Anywhere from a coffee shop to a pretzel or donut shop. Relaxing and lively atmosphere at the same time.

If you arrive in Sibiu, you should not miss this square. It has plenty of historical buildings and most of the best restaurants and pubs are located here or nearby. This square is great in the morning and also during the evening.

There was a middle age festival when we were there, with music and dance all over the place. The kids loved it. There are a number of restaurants and bars around It worths a visit.

Hi, unfortunately i am not from Sibiu and don't know what markets/ fairs are organized in that period. You might want to ask someone who is from that area. Have fun & hope you enjoy our country!
