On our way to the medieval city of Sighisoara, we’ve decided to visit the Transylvanian city of Sibiu a couple of days after Christmas. Fortunately, the historical center in Sibiu is not very far from the A1 motorway and since we where in the area, we decided to drive to the old town and explore it.
Old buildings in the historic center
Among the things we visited in Sibiu were the old buildings and landmarks located in historic center. Actually this picture was taken right in front of the Lutheran Cathedral.
Christmas fair in Sibiu
There was a Christmas fair in the Grand Square and a lot of small shops were still opened for the locals and for the tourists. In this square you will find some of Sibiu’s main sights like the Brukenthal National Museum and the Council tower.
The Liar’s bridge
If you take a closer look at the image below, you can see the year 1859 on a smaller plate, actually thats the date when the Liar’s bridge was finished. This small iron bridge connects the Lower Town with the Upper town. As far as I know, this is a very popular destination in Sibiu and
Under The Liar’s bridge
After we arrived to the Transylvanian city of Sibiu, our next objective was to find the famous Liar’s bridge. Fortunately it was only a couple of streets away from where we parked our car. After almost 15 minutes of walking and admiring the historical center of Sibiu we finally found the amazing Liar’s bridge. From there actually you can see a part of the Council tower and some of the old buildings from the Lesser square.
The Lutheran Cathedral
This Lutheran Cathedral is located in the historic center of the Transylvanian city of Sibiu. This Gothic-style church was built in the 14th century and today is a landmark of the city. In the area you will also find other important structures like the Liar’s bridge and the Council tower. If you plan to visit the interior of the cathedral you have to pay for a ticket.
Towards our next objective in Sibiu
After exploring the Grand Square and the Lower Town, we decided to walk towards our next objective, which was the Sibiu steam locomotive museum. Fortunately it was only about 20 minutes away from the Historical center.
