Sibiu Sights

Meandering through Sibiu, you’ll wonder where time has gone. From the 15th century towers to the 16th century Bridge of Lies, you’ll lose yourself in the medieval atmosphere of the city. Sibiu is divided into Upper Town and Lower Town. Upper Town holds the most historic sights. Lower Town has colorful buildings, and the city’s walls and defence towers. Traverse the beautiful Passage of Steps to move between the two. We recommend a city walking tour. Sibiu's squares, streets and churches are all wonderful to explore. Then take a break on the Great Square, center of city life. Coming or going from Sibiu, providing you're going in summer, you’ll most likely travel the Transfagarasan road. These twists and turns crisscross the tallest sections of the Carpathian Mountains.

Sibiu Tourism

Sibiu is home to many firsts. Printers here printed the first book in the Romanian language. Sibiu hosted the country’s first hospital and pharmacy. The city also houses Romania’s oldest museum, the Brukenthal Art Museum. To get a true taste of local life, pay a visit to the Cibin market. Then join the shoppers on Balcescu or Cetatii streets. Take a short bus or tram ride to the Astra Open Air Museum. Here you can discover the region’s technological and architectural legacy. Cultural heritage is important in Sibiu. The city hosts an Easter Fair, a Christmas Market, and a National Festival of Folk Traditions. Plus there's a Craftsmen’s Fair in August and a Pottery Fair in September. Sibiu is the perfect destination while on a tour of Romania, before or after Bucharest.
