The Big Square in Sibiu is one of the most memorable places in Romania. The square was first mentioned in 1366 being one of the oldest in Romania

It all looks very smart but seems to lack the charm of some other similar squares in other old cities. Lots of expensive restaurants but nothing much for just a light snack. Be careful of the fountain of nine jets of water that suddenly shoot up without warning just as you could be walking over what you think is a grille for a drain but it's the point where the water comes out! Very helpful Tourist Information office.

These squares show off the best Romania has to offer. There are some peasants here but they have worked hard to make these squares a tourist destination. The locals are on the edges and in the old town. A few wealthy and tourists are the inhabitants here.

The Piata Mare is a delightful pedestrian-only square, fronted by beautiful buildings with a nice range of restaurants and cafes. This area is really the major attraction in Sibiu. This is an old Saxon German town, and its original name was Hermannstadt. The square shows why the Saxons loved this place, and why the Romanians love it still. When the sun is shining, the buildings have a glorious glow to them.
