Sibiu Is Waiting For You To Discover It

Sibiu is located in Transylvania, Romania, and was the capital of the Principality of Transylvania. This Romanian city is lovely since it retains a medieval atmosphere with unchanged elements of a past era. Sibiu is almost on the passage from Wallachia to Transylvania and belongs to the Central District, Sibiu province. It is a city with a great history that begins as early as 1191.

However, the most important historical fact of the city was that after the end of World War I, Sibiu became part of Romania. At the same time, the majority of its population was still German (until 1941) and had a sizeable Romanian community as well as a smaller Hungarian one. From the 1950s until the 1990s, most of the city’s Germans emigrated to Germany and Austria. This completely changed the demographic data of the city as well as its character and culture.

What’s interesting about that is that significant changes took place not many years ago. The city still has some diversity that is depicted in the buildings and everyday life of the locals. Visiting a place like that will definitely excite you and awaken your imagination. So, in this article, we will travel together and give you various ideas about what you can see and do there when you visit this Romanian city.

Organizing the trip

To get to Sibiu, all you have to do is to get on a plane to Bucharest. Once you arrive, you can take a bus, train, or car to Sibiu. In any case, the route will enchant you as the landscapes you will see are amazing. Arriving in Sibiu, you will find remarkable hotels to stay in. It has a variety of hotels, either luxurious or affordable, to cover all tastes.

A tip that will be useful to you is to choose a hotel near the city center because the distances are not at all short. In the center, you get a bus or a taxi to explore the city. In addition, keep in mind that in the center there are beautiful parks where you can walk in the morning enjoying a hot coffee!

Must do and see

Arriving in Sibiu, it is worth taking a walk in the Old Town. The Old Town of Sibiu, the largest and most well-preserved City in Romania, is an excellent cultural center in the country, where many events take place every year. The medieval city is divided into two parts, the upper and lower city.Its medieval fortification and the towers it included are also preserved. Then you can continue the walk to the plates Mare, the city’s main square. Beautiful baroque houses are perfectly preserved, and a beautiful fountain, colorful flowers, and many cafes and restaurants await you to discover them. 

Remember to see the Bruckenthal Palace, which is now a museum and houses the main halls of the National Museum, as well as the oldest and most important Art Gallery in Romania. Important works by famous painters such as Botticelli are exhibited here, and they are surely worth your attention. The museum was the palace of Baron Samuel Brookenthal, former governor of Transylvania (1785). Next to the imposing museum, there is the council tower, and the view from its top is unique.


In Romania, words like ”diet” do not exist. The food is heavy but not spicy. This means that it includes a lot of butter and meat. In any case, it will be difficult to resist a delicious dish. Their cuisine has many similarities to Mediterranean dishes. One of their traditional dishes is a kind of cabbage roll.

Another suggestion is to try traditional Romanian soups and pies and the traditional Langos, a kind of street food worth trying. It is also worth trying traditional sweets such as gogos, which is a kind of donut, but also savarin, a syrup cake with whipped cream. If you find yourself there, be sure that all the suggestions are tempting and worth a try!
