A very friendly area to spend a day wandering around with lots of beautiful buildings,especially churches. Even the mix of decay and renovation has a charm plus plenty of great places to stop at to eat and drink.

Sibiu has a wonderful old city centre where you can admire the beautiful buildings, churches & museums. Have a coffee at a cafe or a meal at a restaurant, cross the bridge of lies and shop at the handicrafts stalls. Lovely place.

this part of the city has a lot of small narrow streets with old houses. Some of the houses were very interesting in a shabby chic sort of way.
