It's a beautiful square, but not very impressive, if compared to others. Charming anyway, with local sellers and don't forget about the pigeons!

Numerous cafes, and also benches permit you to see life in this city. While we were there, cars were moved into the square- it is our impression that they were new- and for sale.

The square is a perfect place for people watching and appreciating the architecture. Some touristy hawkers are present but are not aggressive. The tourist info center is right here for getting a walking map. Tons of cafe and restaurants.

Though it was raining off and on the square was active. Locals were enjoying themselves along with the visitors, until the down pour hit. Then every one scrambled for the umbrellas and a drink. Fun place I would imagine in the summer.

I felt like in "Friends": staying every day at the same table and at the same restaurant, but the surroundings are far more attractive.

Less restaurants and cafes to choose, nice big space for people to walking across to each ally, each of them got more restaurants to choose and they set up ice cream shops and small ones around the town. It was nice to see people coming...More

We visited in June and I lost all my beautiful photos of Sibiu because of a corrupted memory card. If you have any JPEG photos you could send me, it would be most appreciated. I would like to add a few to my photo album. Thanks so much!

Hi. Unfortunately, at this moment I do not have any photos. But I will keep in mind your request. I hope in the future I will be able to help you. Have a nice day.
Hi, I will be visiting Sibiu between 11th - 14th July. Am looking for recommendations regarding markets / fairs selling local art / crafts / food items. Or any flea markets being held during those dates. Some way to soak in the local culture and also be able to buy some nice souvenirs for back home. TIA!

Hi, unfortunately i am not from Sibiu and don't know what markets/ fairs are organized in that period. You might want to ask someone who is from that area. Have fun & hope you enjoy our country!
