Large square surrounded by terraces and cafes. If you came to attend a show or a concert in Sibiu, it's probably going to be held here. Good spot for those who enjoy feeding pigeons. Lots of benches to sit on, unfortunatelly there's no shade, as there are no trees in the area. Overall, worth a quick stroll before visiting the Brukenthal Museum.

It is a cute little Plaza with a striking statue of the founder of the first Romanian language school. I did not find Sibiu very beautiful after having been to Cluj in gorgeous Hungarian/Romanian Transylvania. It is very average for Europe-I gave it an additional star for the statue.

We stay three days and it isn't enough for me.We drink at the terrace and see the arhitecture, the windows on the roof's house, the turnul Sfatului-where we climbed and see the nice panorama. It is a beautifull city.

An impressive sized square, that was open and clean and full of life. A nice place to absorb the atmosphere of the city, to sit and people watch and to enjoy the architecture of the buildings around. There are some nice places to eat or drink around the square and it’s a good base to orient yourself around for exploring the town.

A good place to start the stroll through the city. Everything is on the walking perimeter. Tourist office, churches, the Bridge of Lies, a tower, old city fortification, museums, cages and restaurants.

This old main square in Sibiu is pretty nice. When I was there they set all these candles up in the middle and was quite spectacular at night to walk around. Afew acts were playing too you could enjoy. There are many restaurants around here to enjoy too.

This is one of the finest squares in Europe. Out of season it is an absolute delight because there aren't too many tourists about. Do think of an excuse to go into the tourist office, housed in a magnificrent former bank and also accommodating the town hall. Very helpful lady and a policeman who likes to try his French as well as his English.

Great place with many restaurants, coffee shops and souvenirs shops. Excellent place to see the old traditional buildings. It's the best place to start visiting the old city.

Piata Mare în Sibiu îs a great main square in the middle of Sibiu. It is a place where everything is close that you want to go. There are great building, restaurant and sights close.

Why I gave 1 star is to draw the attention to the parents of todlers or kindergarten children. The pavement is out of cubic stones/ cobblestone and that is the worse surface for the childrens play. They will run, trip and injure themselves. My child injured her chin after tripping and I had to take her to the hospital.

Otherwise, The Big Square is a very nice medieval city center, worth to visit. It is definetly a five star.
