Reminiscent of the height of the bourgeoisie and retaining much of its medieval architecture, Sibiu is Romania's cultural gem.
Popular historic sites such as Citadel of Alba Iulia and Lutheran Evangelical Cathedral & Tower are in your itinerary. Appreciate the collections at ASTRA Museum and Brukenthal National Museum. Explore Sibiu's surroundings by going to Alba Iulia (Catedrala Reintregirii Neamului (Coronation Cathedral), Obeliscul lui Horea, Closca si Crisan, & more) and Rapa Rosie (in Sebes). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Big Square (Piata Mare), pause for some serene contemplation at Biserica Evanghelică Fortificată, contemplate the long history of Fortress Walls, and take in panoramic vistas at Turnul Sfatului (The Tower of the Council).
