Sibiu (Hermannstadt in German) was the largest and wealthiest of the seven walled citadels built in the 12th century by German settlers known as Transylvanian Saxons. The riches amassed by its guilds paid for the construction of both impressive buildings and the fortifications required to protect them. Sibiu’s Old Town retains the grandeur of its earlier days when rich and powerful guilds dominated regional trade. Like Sighisoara and Brasov, it has a distinctly Germanic feeling. Sections of the medieval wall still guard the historical area, where narrow streets pass steep-roofed 17th century buildings with gable overhangs before opening into vast, church-dominated squares such as the Great Square and the Small Square. Sibiu is a pedestrian-friendly city with two easily accessible levels: the Upper town, home to most of Sibiu's historic sight, and the Lower town, lined with colorful houses on cobblestone streets and bounded by imposing city walls and defense towers overlooking the river Cibin. Traditionally, the Upper town was the wealthier part and commercial outlet, while the Lower town served as the manufacturing area. The historical centre includes the Great Square, Huet Square, the beautiful Passage of Steps connecting the upper town to the lower town, the well-known Liars’ Bridge, Goldsmiths’ Square and the Small Square. The seven walled citadels populated by the Saxons of Transylvania were known in German as the Siebenburgen. Then we go toward the people of Sibiel, where we visit the largest museum of Icons painted on glass of Romania. After the visit, we will have a typical lunch in the homes of the peasants, with drinks included in the menu (wine and brandy). In the late afternoon arrival to Sibiu. You have the chance to stroll through this beautiful medieval city and know it in depth. Dinner and accommodation in Sibiu.
