Former European Capital of Culture, Sibiu is a beautifully restored medieval city in the South of Transylvania. Built in the 12th century by German settlers, the city is famous for its rich history, charm, delicious food and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The town is divided between the Upper Town, home to most of Sibiu's historic sights, and the Lower Town, complete with cobblestone streets, corner cafés and beautiful churches. Why not visit the well-preserved Citadel of Sibiu which is one of the best fortified in Europe? Just outside Sibiu lies one of the largest open-air ethnography museums in Europe, featuring a real - size Transylvanian village with authentic century old houses and workshops.
