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.

The most exciting part of the day shall be the 30 minutes trip on the tourist tram, which has its route going through a very splendid natural landscape including in its 22 km long sites as Dumbrava Forest, The Zoo, The Village Museum and Rasinari. The tram consists of an engine carriage and a restaurant carriage, and it can also be rented by large groups but no more than 50.
