Let yourself be carried away by the small streets of Sibiu that are ready to show you the beauty and history of our country. Below, you will find some of the objectives that will delight you, waiting to wish you “Welcome to our home!”
- The Lower Town The Lower Town comprises the area between the river and the hill, and it developed around the earliest fortifications. The streets are long and quite wide for medieval city standards, with small city squares at places. The architecture is rather rustic: typically two-storey houses with tall roofs and gates opening passages to inner courts.
- The Upper Town – At the centre of the upper town are three beautiful squares. The Great Square is the site of the Roman-Catholic church and the Brukenthal Palace, where you will find one of Romania’s most important art collections. The square is linked to the Little Square by a passage beneath the Council Tower, which is worth visiting for the excellent views over the town. The third square, Huet Square, is dominated by the Evangelical Cathedral.
- The Great Square -First mentioned in a written document in 1411 as a grain market, the Great Square – the largest square in the city, has been throughout the centuries a quiet witness to the town’s lively merchant activity, assemblies and even public executions. Located in the heart of the old walled city, the square was designated an architectural monument by UNESCO and features some of the most impressive buildings in Sibiu.
- The Little Square -From the Great Square, walk through one of two tunnels under the arches of the Council Tower to arrive at the Little Square. Today, small shops, cafes and businesses line the square.
- Huet Square (Piata Huet) -Huet Square is home to a mix of gothic buildings dominated by the Evangelical Cathedral (Biserica Evangelica). This impressive structure, featuring five pointed towers, was built in 1520 on the site of an old Roman basilica.
- Bridge of Lies– Several steep streets and stairways lead from the upper to the lower town. One of them passes beneath the iron Bridge of Lies.
- Sibiu’s Towers – Three 15th century towers have withstood the test of time: Harquebusiers’ Tower (Turnul Archebuzierilor), Carpenters’ Tower (Turnul Dulgherilor) and Potters’ Tower (Turnul Olarilor). The 16-th century Great Tower (Turnul Gros) was the site of Sibiu’s first theatrical performance, staged in 1778.
