    A big, open square in the heart of the town with the main church and museum located there as well as lots of shops and cafes.

    Must see in Sibiu. You can see farmer houses from all over Romania, plus some village wood churches.
    Some rooms contain peasant furniture, beddings and clothes, but they can be seen only from outside.
    Your children will appreciate the wood toys manufacturing corner.
    This is the only Sibiu museum open on Mondays and Tuesdays.

    Relatively most of the houses restored, still a lot of things to do. I would appreciate a plate on each historic building detailing the most important info about the building.

    For 2 lei this is definitely a must do. The entrance is up some stairs at the bottom of the Council building (under the white arches). You pay and then climb up a few flights of stairs which aren’t too steep and are fairly wide compared to many other towers. At the top, you get a great panorama for the price and, although it’s enclosed so your photos might not be as good, it’s amazing value for the price. If you can time it for golden hour, then you’re in for a treat.

    Place is magnificent. The art and work put into the interiors and monumentality is amazing. Would be nice if people could access the secondary floor too. Spiritually and religiously a breathtaking space to visit with a strong showcase of orthodox and Byzantine artwork, the stained glass being of the utmost quality too. Unfortunately the lady seller in the book store didn't seem too interested to have customers or any basic manners for that matter. Some leaflets or brochures, a info poster about the building and it's art can go long way too.

    We had lunch as the Atrium and while sitting next to the bridge I noticed it was a nice architectural addition but didn't know the significance. It's in a quite spot off the main square and worth a look.

    Piața Mică îs a cute square în the city center with multiple restaurants and sights very close to it. You will pass it when staying here for a couple of days.

    The Museum of Sibiu - the Samuel von Brukenthal National Museum in Sibiu ... It houses fine arts - that section we skipped this time - we've visited that part of the museum several times between 2006 and 2017 ... maybe next time when we are in Sibiu we will revisit that.
    This time we picked 3 exhibits - 1 Goya and Dali sketches ... well I was familiar a bit with the art of Dali ...strange, twisted, expressive and surprising (not easy to understand at all - for me at least). - Goya was new to me , but more digestible and likeable- have to say.
    Than we went to a photo exhibit - "Following the footsteps of Darwin" a picture expo about evolution of species and the Galapagos islands. Very interesting.
    And the close it up - contemporary painting ... there I was really lost ... interesting perspectives ... but have to say not really my kind of art.
    Overall we spent about 2-2,5 hours , in a great place - and since the admission fee is a real bargain I recommend you go and check it out when you are in Sibiu ...

    Extremely well renovated, a beautiful experience. Something at the level of western similar monuments.

    Nice pedestrian walk through the center of the city with well preserved Habsburg architecture. This is the city where there are a lot of small windows in the attics that look like "eyes" and this feature can be seen along the street. Lots of nice cafes and shops.

    There is not that much train traffic and it is tolerated (and done by quite a few).
    You are not meant to step inside the locomotives. No charges.

    I'm not a particular fan of locked up animals, however this place feels more like a park, it's green and spacious, there's even several lakes, and the animals look well cared for, I didn't observe that typical stress behavior, the monkeys were happily playing and the big cats taking lazy naps, all looked well in the animal kingdom here :-)
    Oh by the way, the entrance ticket is a very reasonable 10 lei (2 euro)!

    Even if you're not a church fan a visit to this very beautiful and richly decorated Baroque-style building is highly recommended!

    Part of cities history - and of the former fortifications once surrounding the city. The fortifications built in the XIIIth and XIVth centuries and this is a small portion that is still standing and it was preserved (and refurbished) it its original state.
    Finding the place is fairly easy - you decent from the Tower of Stairs and take a left and you can ge back to the "Upper Town" via the Passage of stairs.
    So if you are in the area for sure it is worth it to stop for a few pics - it is worth it from my perspective.

    We were wandering around Sibiu and wound up in this neighborhood on the way to our hotel. The rooflines are very interesting with the eyes on many of the roofs.
