I found Sibiu a very nice, amazing historical city, I think the city won the Cultural Capital of Europe in 2007 for a very good reason.
Here are just some of its sights what I enjoyed most: 1. The 'Holy Trinity' Romanian Orthodox Cathedral, based on plans of Virgil Nagy and Jozsef Kamner.
2. The Evangelical Church built in the 14th century located on the Huet Square among of many gothic style buildings.
3. The Catholic Church built in the 18th century.
4. The Tower of the Carpenters.
5. The Small Square (what a funny name:P), and 6. the Liars Bridge.
