I always feel that somebody’s watching me, especially in Sibiu. Does that ring a bell for you? Probably not, because Sibiu is one of those hidden gems that has still remained hidden. Sibiu, located in the heart of Transylvania, Romania, is a charming city with a rich history, stunning architecture, and a vibrant cultural scene. There are loads of reasons why travelers should consider visiting Sibiu.
Not surprisingly, given its location in Central Europe, the city boasts a well-preserved medieval old town with cobblestone streets, colorful buildings, and impressive architecture. The city has been influenced by various cultures, including German, Hungarian, and Romanian, creating a unique blend of architectural styles.
If art is your thing, then Sibiu is your new best friend. For example, check out the Brukenthal National Museum: Housed in the palace of Samuel von Brukenthal, the museum is the oldest in Romania and one of the first public museums in Europe. It features an extensive collection of European art, including paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts.
Maybe sneaking a trick from Venice, Sibiu also has a Bridge of Lies: Legend has it that this bridge, dating back to the 19th century, will collapse if someone tells a lie while standing on it. While the legend is just a myth, the bridge itself is a picturesque spot with a fascinating story.
