Touring Sibiu means basically seeing one very large piazza with a fine palace in the middle surrounded by great aristocratic townhouses (the Brukenthaler is one) and a much smaller lower square which is mostly useful for giving great views and perspective on the main attraction above. If you are traveling in Transylvania, Sibiu is not to be missed. The Brukenthal Museum has a radiant van Eyck (a man in a splendid blue headdress) two fine portraits (husband and wife) by Memling, a small Titian portrait, and a stunning Antonello da Messina Crucifixion. It also has a wonderfully self-satisfied portrait of Louis XIV's gardener. Seeing the square and the museum would take half a day, but it's such a pleasant setting, taking more time and spending the night would not be a waste. Sibiu is very proud of its salami, by the way.
