Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
Big Square (Piata Mare) features medieval and classical houses noted as "the eyes of the city," because the narrow roof window openings resemble half-open eyes. Surrounded by museums, cafes, and restaurants, and paved with granite tiles, the square was initially established as a grain market during the 14th and the 15th centuries. See the central fountain with the iron grates and the statue of Gheorghe Lazăr, founder of the first language school in Romania. Prominent buildings include Brukenthal Palace, which houses a museum, the city hall, and an 18th-century Jesuit church. Notice the flag on the roof of the Council Tower, which bears the emblem of the guild. Use our Sibiu trip generator to arrange your visit to Big Square (Piata Mare) and other attractions in Sibiu.

  • At one end of a beautiful tree lined shopping street lies this square circled with important buildings all around. 
  • It was a pleasure to stroll along the perimeter of the square and take some side street which then sideways you reported on the square. Beautiful buildings, nice people, nice shops and many ideas for those who love photography. Worth a stop, possibly with an overnight to fully enjoy its vibrancy.
