If you decide to visit Romania then you need to visit Transylvania. And if you go to Transylvania you don’t have to miss Sibiu town, one of the most beautiful historical city in Romania.
Hermannstadt (German name) was the capital of Principality of Transylvania between 1692-1791 and 1849-1865, and now is one of Romania's cultural and tourism capitals, attracting tourists due to its wonderful medieval charm and excellent views of the surrounding landscapes.
Founded in 1191, Sibiu became the most important ethnic German city in Transylvania and a big trade center with 19 craftmen’s guilds.
In 2007 was designated the European Capital of Culture and on this occasion a large part of the old city has been reconstructed, bringing back to life the old medieval world.
The old medieval town is perhaps Sibiu main attraction, and it is really beautiful. Most of the buildings were built by German settlers and merchants who came to Sibiu in the late Middle Ages. Some of the main points of attraction are:
Lesser Square (Small Square)
Deffense wall and towers
Visitors can spend days on the old narrow streets with colorful medieval houses and arcade
The Passage of the Stairs, leads down to the lower section of Sibiu. It descends along some fortifications under the support arches. It is the most picturesque of the several passages linking the two sides of the city
And this is not all, Come to Sibiu and you will not regret!
Great photos, good work. The old town are unique and just down from the main street to know the secret places. Romania is still undiscovered state. But this is slowly changing. Best wishes from Poland.
