You must wander these streets. Some quirky little houses along with a market area where you can try a local mititei with mustard. Some great restaurants around too such as la Culptor.

Sibiu is one of Romania's cultural and tourism capitals, attracting tourists due to its wonderful medieval charm. The Large Square, Brukenthal Museum, Liars’ Bridge, Evangelic Church, Citadel wall with 3 towers are just some of the attraction to be seen in Sibiu!

Much less visited than Sibiu Old Town, the Lower Town is nevertheless worth visiting for its market and historic buildings.

There are some very interesting old buildings in this part of the city and I would recommend a walk through the streets and it makes a great place for photographs of how the buildings played their part in the history of the city.
