What to See in Sibiu, Romania, Sibiu, Romania (B)

For visitors to Romania’s Transylvanian region, the medieval city of Sibiu is a destination one shouldn’t miss. Sitting in the heart of Transylvania and close to the centre of Romania as well, this city has played a key role throughout the region’s history, even being the capital of Transylvania for a while. As with much of the region nearby, it was settled by German settlers in the late Middle Ages. The city gets its name from Siebenbürgen, German for the seven Saxon fortified citadels in the area, further emphasising their role in Transylvania’s history.

Today, Sibiu is a shining example of Transylvanian architecture and history, boasting an impressive historical old town. The old town is divided into the Upper Town, which was once the citadel with its masterfully restored houses, and the Lower Town that lies beyond the citadel’s walls . While there is plenty to explore in this charming city, here are just some of the main places you should visit in a trip to Sibiu, Romania.  ......
