Sibiu Old Town


2 reviews of Sibiu Old Town

Very beautiful and harmonious

Old Sibiu, built in the Middle Ages by the Saxons ve came from Germany, is probably the city's biggest attraction. It is very beautiful and harmonious. The majority of the old downtown buildings were built by German businessmen ve were very rich and enjoyed many privileges granted to them by the king. As they were accepted to be installed in Sibiu and defend this territory, the king basically did not charge them any taxes, something which lasted for centuries! Sibiu Old houses reflected such wealth. Among the important buildings is the Council Tower, a triangular house built in the 14th century, the Dominican monastery built in 1474 which became the monastery of the Ursulines in 1728.
