Day 2: Sibiu - discover the city of superlatives!

After breakfast, the guide will pick you up from the hotel and you will start to discover a wonderful medieval town.  

Sibiu is a charming city with a rich history, diverse architecture, and romantic squares waiting to be discovered. By walking in the old town will have a deep understanding of the city's historical, social, economical and architectural background. So, we will start the day with a walking tour and we will feel the atmosphere, we will admire the beautiful buildings and discover all the hidden paths.

Hermannstadt (the old name of Sibiu) is perceived as a city of art and culture. A great number of cultural monuments, a diversity of museums, and various artistic and cultural events make up the pillars of a complex cultural profile. Using this simple premise, an attractive and stimulating atmosphere has been created for residents and visitors who take the opportunity to experience cultural life in this Transylvanian city. 

We will start with Huet Square, the first square of the city and the place of the first fortress of Sibiu. We will learn more about the Lutheran Cathedral nearby and the Journeyman house. Then, we will walk to the Small Square, passing over the Liars Bridge, where we will hear all the facts and legends related to the small iron cast structure. In Small Square, we will learn about the "eyes of the city" and we will discover the only element which survived the second fortress: The Council tower. 

Then will continue in the Large Square, where we will learn more about the events that happened there over the centuries. We will find out the story of the Brukenthal Palace, the Town Hall and the Catholic Church.

Then, we will walk towards the southern fortification, still standing after more than 5 centuries. We will learn more about the medieval defence system and the transformations it endured during its long history. We will not miss the Orthodox Cathedral.

Of course, the local guide will help you by recommending the best restaurants in town to serve lunch or dinner. As European Region of Gastronomy in 2019, Sibiu will delight you with delicious local dishes.
