We visited the Big Square around winter holidays and there was a big tree in its middle, with wooden shops to sell different items: food, drinks, clothes, accessories, sweets.

A good place to start your night in the summer. It has several benches to sit on and watch people walk by, feed pigeons or watch the fountain. It's surrounded by lots of bars and restaurants.

Visited it during wintertime and it is just amazing. You can smell and taste Christmas everywhere. We were criss-crossing the narrow streets near the big square which made the whole experience unforgettable.

Like any other city around the world, it's main square is also its ground zero. The Big Square in Sibiu is packed full with history wich you can easily discover if you walk around it. Perfect to set as a destination of any walk you might take in Sibiu.

It is always a pleasure to return to the "Big Square", it is a different world, a mix of everything, old style, but fresh!
