We arrived to Sibiu (in german it's Hermannstadt) in the afternoon. Sibiu has been chosen to be the European Capital of Culture in the year of 2007 together with Luxembourg.

The city is beautiful and amazingly clean compared to other romanian cities, with a wonderful city center. All of the buildings (I think) were renovated, there are flowers planted everywhere and anytime you go you will find some kind of program organized at the city square.

Sibiu History

Located in Southern Transylvania, at the foot of Fagaras Mountains, Sibiu attracts tourists with its beautifully restored historic center, famous ethnographic park and intense cultural life. Sibiu’s history is closely linked to the history of the German colonists in Transylvania: it was them who founded Sibiu in the middle of the 12th century, on the remains of an old Slavic settlement.
