TO SIBIU!
Through this brochure, we would like to offer an overall
image of Sibiu as a touristic destination, depicting it
as it actually is: a mixture of a dynamic, constantly
developing city, and a historical and cultural one.
As a cultural location, Sibiu no longer needs a
presentation after having been in 2007 the European
Cultural Capital. Before 2007 and ever since then, the
cultural life of the city is the breath that enlivens the
whole historical center, the whole of the city. Starting
with the International Theatre Festival and till the
Christmas Fair, the squares and the central streets
are daily filled with actors and audiences, singing and
talking. In the last 10 years Sibiu has become a wellknown tourist destination in Europe, and has recently
proved to posess the qualities of a cultural tourist
destination.
Thanks to all its community effort, Sibiu still preserves
its history and culture, yet it is not stuck in the
past. Culture and history are up to date, therefore
Sibiu is also a dynamic economic centre, a valuable
university city, a place where young people can find an
appropriate living environment.
@Sebastian Marcovici
WELCOME
We have a very good street infrastructure, efficient
public transportation and we enjoy the services of a
recently modernised International Airport. These are
some of the reasons which allow me to assert that
Sibiu is worth visiting and discovering by each one of
its guests.
I invite you to discover Sibiu!

WHY LOVE SIBIU
Because the cosiness of one’s home strikes here an
excellent balance with the exuberance of modern
cosmopolitan life and the charm of the medieval streets.
Proud of their city, the people of Sibiu can give you lots
of reasons to believe that Sibiu is unique, spectacular,
authentic and interesting. They’ll tell you what you need
to see, what you should enjoy, what to take home with you
and why you should come back again and again. No matter
how many times you visit it, Sibiu is never the same.
The local people here are trustworthy, they greet you
reverently, with a smile. Several different nationalities
have been living here for centuries, hence the history, the
heritage and the multicultural present of the city. In the
conference rooms, around the touristic points of interest, in
the bohemian cafés, delight is uttered in many languages.
Sibiu is one of the most romantic places in the heart of
Transylvania, set at the bottom of the snowy mountains, in
an exquisite landscape.
So many people, tourists, opportunities and places to see
in Sibiu, so many timeless stories. Under the eyes of the old
roofs in the centre, one becomes in a blink an actor on the
magnificent city stage. The Large Square is always wearing
holiday garments, the festivals are going on and on and the
vivid life of the city is always surprisingly different.
Sibiu is a city with a rich cultural
heritage, the European Cultural Capital
in 2007, an eminent educational
centre, a prosperous business centre
favourable for industry and durable
development.
Sibiu is redesigning itself and is
creatively developing a positive image
among European tourist destinations.
You will be the guest of honour, you
will feel just like one of the natives, you
will enjoy the energy and feel relaxed,
and in the end you will heartily say:
„I love it!”
And you’ll come back again.
Old and new at the same time,
always young since its first official
record in 1191.
Simply: Sibiu.

THE
COUNCIL TOWER
THE COUNCIL TOWER
IF YOU WANT TO DISCOVER
THE STORIES OF SIBIU,
your walk should start from the heart of the city:
the Council Tower.
THE SYMBOL AND HEART OF SIBIU
An old yet slender symbol, an arch connecting the
Small Square and the Large Square, an axis mundi
that has been unifying for ages the life of the people
in Sibiu. From the top of it, an urban oasis
of beauty is spreading at your feet.
Nowadays a historical monument, the Council
Tower or the City Hall Tower has an old story that
starts in 1224-1241, at the same time as the second
fortification precinct. In its immediate vicinity was
the City Hall, hence its name. Out of the initial
tower, only the lower part resisted over time.
The tower looked very different through the ages,
being rebuilt in 1588 after a devastating earthquake,
rising more than its initial four stories and then
repeatedly going through changes
and rehabilitation work.

SIBIU - HERMANNSTADT / YOUNG SINCE 1191
Contemporary with the first cornerstones
of old Hermannstadt, the Council Tower has
played an administrative, military and cultural
role, experiencing all the ages of the city. It was
alternatively a gate tower, watch tower, jail,
granary, museum, and an observation point
for a spectacular vista. Together with the wary
eyes of the roofs, the Council Tower has been a
silent witness of Sibiu’s history. It saw the fairs
and the gatherings, the zeppelin that flew high
above it between the two world wars, and the
nostalgic streetcar passing by.
A NARROW DOOR ON THE SMALL SQUARE SIDE
WILL LET YOU INSIDE THE TOWER.
THE COUNCIL TOWER
In its shadow lingered noble guests or
ruthless conquerors, local people in a hurry,
bohemian tourists and friendly pidgeons.
From the medieval executions till the
present concerts and festivals that enliven
both squares of the city, the Council Tower
might tell the whole history of Sibiu – a wise
city thanks to its multicultural heritage, a
dynamic and always surprising place.
The Council Tower grew rich
in 2007, when Sibiu was the
European Capital of Culture,
with a new commemorative
plaque bearing its mission,
which is also the whole city’s
mission, engraved on it:
The clock, whose elaborate mechanism
can be admired just below the top floor, is
pacing together with the people strolling
in the Large Square, while the tall tower
watches over the city.
„CULTURAL
DIVERSITY,
A BRIDGE
BETWEEN
HERITAGE AND
THE CULTURE
OF THE
FUTURE.”
The vista from the top of the tower, a true
bird’s eye view, is enchanting one’s soul,
revealing the show of a photogenic city:
southwards one can sweep a part of the
Large Square, the centre, Vasile Aaron
District, till one’s eyes are climbing the
snowy summits of the Făgăraş Mountains.
Westwards the eyes will reign over the
other part of the Large Square, Nicolae
Bălcescu Street – the city’s main vessel,
swarming with tireless people – over Sub
Arini Park and Dumbrava Forest. Northward
and eastward one’s eyes can wander about
the Terezian District, the railway station and
Guşteriţei Hill.

THE BRIDGE OF LIES
There are lots of funny myths about this
place. Once upon a time, when famous
mongers were gathering in the Small
Square, the bridge used to be a dreaded
place of punishment. After haggling,
unsatisfied customers were confronting
the dishonest sellers under the bridge,
while the crowd was roaring with laughter.
A fruitful kind of show, because the
mongers became reluctant to cheat the
people of Sibiu. It was also near this bridge
that the garullous women met daily,
spreading gossip and false news all around
the fortress.
TRUTH AND MYTH OVER...
THE BRIDGE OF LIES
Stories are coming to life at each street corner of magical Sibiu.
While the eyes of the roofs can see every move, there is a place
that hears any whisper between the Small Square and Huet
Square, above Ocnei Street: The Bridge of Lies. Once you set
foot on it, it suddenly becomes alive and sensitive.
Whenever somebody is telling a lie, the awoken giant starts
cracking all over, and the liars are thrown over the rail.
Do you dare to test its fame?
Leaving the financial matters aside and
going straight to those that pertain to
the soul, the bridge has always been a
romantic walkway for lovers. In those
times when handsome cadets of the
Military Academy were studying in Sibiu,
the bridge witnessed their romantic
rendezvous. Under the charming light
of the streetlamps, the young men were
promising eternal love to the young ladies,
but soon forgot their promises and left
the poor girls waiting in vain for the lies to
become true. Even today you might see
such a girl dreaming with starry eyes of the
prince who once promised her a timeless
love story.
Once, there used to be a row of houses in this
place, and right below them went a tunnel
termed in the 16th century by Damasus
Dürr as „the little benches of the lies” – the
hagglers used to gather there, telling stories,
blathering. It was an ill-famed place. The
buildings were demolished in 1851, and a
temporary wooden bridge was built.
A GENUINE JEWEL, THE CAST IRON
BRIDGE THAT WE TREAD UPON TODAY
WAS BUILT IN 1859, BEING THE
FIRST OF THIS KIND THROUGHOUT
ROMANIA’S PRESENT TERRITORY AND
THE SECOND ONE IN EUROPE.
Piaţa Mică / Small Square
A BRIDGE OVER TIME
The name’s origin is much disputed, involving a phonetic confusion
between its name in German and the Saxon dialect. In some
documents it has been called Liegenbrücke – The Lying Brigde,
probably because it had no pillars, or, more recently, Lügen or
Lügnerbrücke, meaning The Bridge of the Liars or of the Lies.
The cast iron bridge, as we see it today, was inaugurated on
December 17, 1860. On its southern side one can see the glittering
Saxon coat of arms, and on the northern one there is the label that
reminds the year and place of founding: 1859, „Friedrichs Hütte”,
Germany.
While enjoying a cup of cofee in a nearby café, you will notice how
some of the passers-by are reluctant to set foot on the bridge and
others are paying attention to every step they take. Well, the bridge
won’t crumble under your feet at some tiny lie, but the myth goes
that it will at least shake you a little. Only truth has a passport to
walk on the Bridge of Lies.

SIBIU’S CHURCHES
SIBIU - HERMANNSTADT / YOUNG SINCE 1191
THE EVANGELICAL CATHEDRAL
SIBIU’S CHURCHES
A STORY ABOUT
TOLERANCE AND
RESPECT
The religious edifices in Sibiu are the
signposts of an ecumenical itinerary
comprising the rich spiritual life of the
city, defined by the cohabitation for ages
of different ethnic groups
and religions.
The sky of Sibiu moulds upon several slender towers’
silhouettes, ancient symbols of the city. One of them is easily
recognisable from afar: the Evanghelical Cathedral tower.
A marvellous Transylvanian Gothic-style monument, the
Evangelical Cathedral is watching over the daily life of the city
from its highest point.
THE LEGEND OF THE TOWER
They say the Saxons in Sibiu were very proud of their town.
Therefore, at the time when they were building the church
tower they were planning to rise the most imposing one in
Transylvania, one that will go „right up to the sky”. Findind
out about the highest church tower in Bistriţa, they sent
two craftsmen to measure its height. So they did – the two
craftsmen went there, sneaked up, and then unreeled a rope
from the top to the ground, measuring the tower. Once the
job got done, they put up for the night at some inn. Alas, their
tongues loosened by wine, the craftsmen talked about their
mission. Therefore, while they were sleeping, somebody cut
off 2 m or so of their rope. And thus the Evangelical tower in
Sibiu is a little over 79 m, while the one in Bistriţa is still the
tallest one in Transylvania: 82 m.
THE TREASURE IN THE HEART OF SIBIU
The church building process started in 1320, on the ruins of
an old Romanic basilica. It was built in three stages, modified
and then rehabilitated. The tower has seven levels and four
turrets, which represented a sign that the town had the right
to sentence to death. The church will surprise you from the
outside with its Baroque portals and the massive, sober walls,
and from the inside with the unearthly air and the treasures it
shelters. From the heights of the tower, a magnificent view
of the city unfolds at one’s feet.

SIBIU’S CHURCHES
You will experience for real inside the church what written
words can only suggest here: the unearthly air, the deep
organ tonalities, the lights playing on the floor, the silence
that makes you forget about the outer noise. The impressive
treasure sheltered here consists of: a bronze font dating from
1438, made by master Leonhardus and presumably cast in
the bronze resulting from the Turkish cannons captured in
1437, the old altar (1545) with its wings inspired by Albrecht
Dürer’s Passions, the vestry door, the south portal (1457), its
Baroque door, the north portal (1509), the resting place of
Baron Samuel von Brukenthal (1803). The tombstones put
in the walls of the church ferula, at the same place with the
Painted Chronicle of the city, constitute a unique gallery in
Romania.

THE METROPOLITAN ORTHODOX CATHEDRAL
While admiring its beauty, the „Holy Trinity” Cathedral
shaped like a Byzantine basilica will remind you of
another monumental architectonical creation: Saint
Sophia Cathedral in Istanbul. The imposing edifice is
the symbol of the spiritual and cultural unity of the
Orthodox believers in Sibiu. In 1857, after Emperor
Franz Joseph consented to start the building, the
Metropolitan Andrei Şaguna asked the priests and the
believers for donations. The construction works started
in 1902, and the cathedral was consecrated on April
30, 1906 by Metropolitan Ioan Meţianu and a group of
priests and deacons.
All those personalities that took part at that event
were a live evidence of the ecumenical thinking and
multiethnic living in Sibiu: the mayor Josef Drotleff,
the historian Nicolae Iorga, the lord lieutenant of the
county Gustav Thalmann, the Lutheran superintendent
Friedrich Teutsch, the Reformed vicar Gidofalvy, and the
Greek-Catholic dean Nicolae Togan.
A TOUR OF THE CHURCHES IN SIBIU WILL
DEFINITELY INCLUDE THE METROPOLITAN
ORTHODOX CATHEDRAL.
The iconostasis and dome were painted by Octavian
Smigelschi, an artist whose works can also be admired
at the Brukenthal Museum. The cathedral’s central
element is the dome with its four little turrets. The
main portico is flanked by two massive turrets serving
as belfries. Today, the cathedral hosts the relics of St.
Andrei Şaguna, the spiritual father of this place.

SIBIU’S CHURCHES
SIBIU - HERMANNSTADT / YOUNG SINCE 1191
THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
The statue of St. Nepomuk, which was initially
placed in the Large Square and stayed there
for centuries, stays now in the church house’s
courtyard. It was removed from its place by the
communists in 1948, dismantled and discarded
in the courtyard of the Brukenthal Museum,
but in 1987 it was restored and put in the place
where we can see it today.
In the heart of Sibiu, the Roman Catholic Church
stands out among the architectonical jewels of the
Large Square. Though younger than the adjacent
buildings, the edifice was harmoniously incorporated
in the architectural vista and invites you to discover its
sacramental and quiet air inside.
In the 16th century, after the Reformation, the
Catholic churches in Sibiu became Evangelic. In 1691,
following the Leopoldine Diploma, Austrian imperial
troops quartered in the town, together with some
military catholic priests. Having no Catholic sanctuary,
they were allowed to hold the service in the Tailors’
Hall in the Large Square. The arrival of the Austrian
troops and officials represented the beginning of the
Catholic community in Sibiu, because some of them
decided to settle down here. In 1708 the Esztergom
Archbishop assigned the mission of leading this
community to the Jesuit monks; they increasingly
needed a Catholic church. Therefore, the construction
started on July 4, 1726, and in 1733 the new church
was consecrated by the Transylvanian Bishop, Baron
Gregor von Sorger.
Piaţa Mare / 3 Large Square
Open: Monday to Saturday,
between 6 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Sunday, between 8.30 a.m – 7 p.m.
Once you see all the churches in Sibiu you
understand why the city hosted in 2007 the
third European Ecumenical Assembly – because
regardless of their religion or language,
the prayers of the city are joining their
variegated voices in one resonant choir: that is
multicultural Sibiu.
Other points of interest in your ecumenical
itinerary:
Built in the Baroque style, in 1901 the stained glass
windows made in Budapest were installed, and
in 1904 it was painted by Ludwig Kandler from
München. The organ came in 1860 from Karl Hesse
in Vienna, whose pipe organs can be listened to in
many Transylvanian churches. The fresco decorating
the main altar, painted in 1777 by the Austrian artist
Anton Steinwald, has for a long time been the one
and only ornament of the church. The Baroque
confesssionals and St. Joseph’s altar are also dating
from the 18th century.

THE FAMOUS CRAFTSMEN
SIBIU - HERMANNSTADT / YOUNG SINCE 1191
SIBIU – THE CITY OF FAMOUS
CRAFTSMEN
O
nce you arrive in Huet Square, between the
Evangelical Church and the Stairs’ Tower, you enter
a charming medieval isle. Just as in an open air
workshop, one can hear the tools hammering and smell
the clay. Peculiarly dressed young craftsmen are carrying
lime sacks or polishing wood beams. Others are carving in
stone, singing with their chisel to the rhythm of long gone
ages. The Middle Ages guilds are right at home in the Huet
Square.
THE JOURNEYMEN’S HOUSE
– a medieval workshop before one’s very eyes
At the Journeymen’s House you’re standing near the oldest edifice in
Sibiu, the Stairs’ Tower. It is part of the first precinct of fortification,
dating from the 13th century. The tower was rebuilt in the 16th
century, on the old foundation, as an access gate between the socalled „Upper Town” and „Lower Town”.
The Journeymen’s House used to be a merchants’ house in the
past. The interior walls are painted, the fresco dating from the 16th
century, and the outside is the result of some changes made in the
19th century. Since 2002, the building has been the quarter of the
travelling journeymen who carry on the old guilds’ tradition.
WHO ARE THE MYSTERIOUS JOURNEYMEN?
Ever since the Middle Ages, the travelling journeymen of
Europe are young people wandering, going far away from
home in order to gain experience in different crafts. Finally,
they are supposed to become skilled craftsmen. There is
a strict code, to this day, regarding who can be a travelling
journeyman, and how. First, the young man or woman must
be under 30, not married, with no kids, obligation or debts.
For three years and one day, the travelling journeyman is
not allowed to come closer than 50 km of his or her home
town. Afterwards, they commit to respect and obey the
rules and traditions of their guild.
THE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE LEAVING ON
THIS JOURNEY WITH ONLY ONE COIN –
AND THEY WILL HAVE TO BRING IT BACK.
THE WANDERING JOURNEYMEN ARE
EASILY RECOGNISABLE IN SIBIU, BECAUSE
THEY’RE DRESSED IN THEIR SPECIALLY
DESIGNED OUTFIT CALLED „KLUFT”:
FLARED PANTS, WAISTCOAT AND COAT IN
THE GUILD’S COLOUR, WHITE SHIRT WITH
STARCHED COLLAR AND HAT.

THE FAMOUS CRAFTSMEN
SIBIU - HERMANNSTADT / YOUNG SINCE 1191
Nowadays, near the Journeymen’s House there is a wood pole
having a lot of nails and all kinds of small sharp objects thrusted
into it. One will find it rather weird, but the explanation comes
from one of the travelling journeymen customs: when leaving,
each young man has to leave on this pole a nail or some small
belonging. This way he will be lucky in his wanderings.
DID YOU KNOW THAT...
THERE IS SUCH A POLE, CALLED STOCK IM
EISEN, IN THE CENTRE OF VIENNA, IN THE
CORNER OF EQUITABLE PALACE, NEAR ST.
STEPHEN’S CATHEDRAL?
Piaţa Huet / 3 Huet Square
SIBIU – RENOWNED CRAFTS CENTRE
The activity of the craft guilds was crucial for the city’s
development. The first guild officially recorded was the Tanners’
guild, in 1367. Manufacturing and exporting their merchandise,
the guilds helped the local economy. They also had a military
role, each guild guarding one tower and one city gate. There
were 40 registered guilds in Sibiu in 1780. In 1872, the guilds
became crafts cooperatives, and the craftsmen tradition
gradually disappeared at the beginning of 20th century, because
of industrialization.
@Dan Şuşa
The wandering journeymen aren’t just old ballads’ heroes. They
still exist in countries such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland and
France. Since 2002, the Journeymen’s House in Sibiu is the first of
its kind outside these countries and the easternmost European
centre where journeymen are still active.
Why precisely here? Because Sibiu has always been a traditional European crafts
centre. Together with Rügen, Neustadt and Leipzig, Sibiu became since 2002 one
of the cities that hosts today’s travelling journeymen. Now, just as during the
Middle Ages, the journeymen are a link between Sibiu and the biggest European
crafts centres. Besides their cultural value, the journeymen are an actual necessity
for monuments’ rehabilitation, because they are still using the traditional
construction methods.
HUET SQUARE AND CETĂŢII STREET ARE
TRANSFORMED DURING SUMMER AND THE

NATIVES ARE MEETING THE DREAMY
TOURISTS’S STROLLS, WHILE PIGEONS
ARE FLUTTERING THEIR WINGS. UNDER
THOSE TIRELESS EYES GAZING FROM
THE ROOFS AT THE LARGE SQUARE,
THE HEART OF SIBIU IS ALWAYS THE
SAME AND IS ALWAYS CHANGING.
@Sebastian Marcovici
It’s been pulsating with life since 1411, when
it was mentioned as a grain market, although
it existed since 1366, at the same time with
the third precinct of fortification. In each of its
ages, the Large Square played another role, but
it has always been the main stage for the life of
Sibiu. Der Grosse Ring or Grosser Platz in the
Middle Ages was the place to negociate the
merchandise of the renowned guilds, and where
at the end of that period public gatherings and
trials were held. The pillory stood in the centre
of the square, with the statue of Roland on top
of it. It was a place of terror, where witches
and criminals were executed, while other lawbreakers, such as the troublemakers or those
who disturbed the peaceful town were exposed
in the „Lunatics Cage”.
The weather vanes on the top of the buildings,
marking the construction year or the guild’s emblem,
are spinning with the wind – and times have changed
the Large Square. The tram used to pass here once,
continuing on Gării Street, then the square became
a park during the communist years, while Saint
Nepomuk’s Statue, which had been here since 1734,
was moved to the Roman Catholic Church’s courtyard.
At the beginning of the communist period, the medieval
buildings on the north side found themselves within
an ace of being demolished, in order to make room for
some huge block of flats. The disaster was stopped just
in time and the medieval look of the square was saved.
Since 2005, all the buildings around the square
have been flawlessly rehabilitated, so they can now
live the history in their authentic garments. All the
edifices around the square are historical monuments,
architectonical jewels that once belonged to some of
the wealthiest families in the city.
Regardless of the season, the Large Square is the
hospitable and dynamic place where something is
always happening. There are concerts all the time,
there are magic fragrances at the Christmas Market –
the Large Square is a huge theatre where anybody can
perfectly fit in. Qualified as one of the most romantic
places of Europe, Sibiu is also the place where you
immediately feel just like home, except here you’re
always surprised by something out of the ordinary.

BRUKENTHAL PALACE

SAMUEL VON BRUKENTHAL
WELCOME TO THE
BRUKENTHAL PALACE!
You are at the first museum opened
for public on Romania’s present day territory
and the largest museum in
South-Eastern Europe.
Built in late Baroque style, the Brukenthal
edifice brings to the heart of Sibiu the
refined air of Viennese palaces. The core of
the valuable museum collections consists of
the painting collection put together by the
fascinating personality that was Baron Samuel
von Brukenthal, the Transylvanian Governor.
You can admire here some of the masterpieces
of European painting, such as „Portrait of a Man
with a Blue Chaperon” by Jan van Eyck, standing
next to Hans Memling, Tiziano Vecellio da
Cadore, Pieter Bruegel the Younger and Pieter
Bruegel the Elder’s works.

BRUKENTHAL PALACE
SIBIU - HERMANNSTADT / YOUNG SINCE 1191
THE BUILDING AND THE ART COLLECTIONS
OF BRUKENTHAL PALACE
SAMUEL VON BRUKENTHAL
(1721-1803)
When you’re standing in the Large Square looking at it, the
elegant building impresses you especially with the stone
framing of the gate. Adorned with the gilded coat of arms
of the Brukenthal family, the portal is also decorated with
urns on top of the columns and garlands sustained by roses.
The massive oak wood doors with the cornucopia carved in
suggest the entrance of a temple of art and opulence.
Once inside, passing under the Murano glass chandeliers
and the rich stucco adorned ceilings, you will find yourself in
some of the most charming rooms of the palace: the drawing
rooms and the Baroque Salon, where the high society of
Sibiu used to gather once, in the refined air of the famous
soirées and cocktails organised by the Baron Brukenthal.
Today, the Brukenthal Palace hosts the European Art
Gallery of the Brukenthal National Museum. From the
basement to the second floor of the palace, you will travel
through ages and styles – the Gothic experience, the
Transylvanian stone sculpture of the 13th – 19th centuries,
the Prints Cabinet and the Maps Cabinet, the medieval
Transylvanian art, the Anatolian rugs exhibition and the
greatest European painting schools: the German and
Austrian painting exhibition and the Flemish-Dutch and
Italian paintings exposed next to the Masterpieces of the
Brukenthal Collection.
Besides the Brukenthal Palace, the Brukenthal National
Museum also includes the Romanian Art Gallery, History
Museum, Pharmacy Museum, Natural History Museum,
Hunting Museum and the Gallery of Contemporary Art.
A LEGENDARY BARON AND
A RENOWNED FREEMASON
Samuel von Brukenthal was appointed Governor of Transylvania
in 1777, by Empress Maria Theresa. He attended the
gymnasium in Sibiu, today named after him, then studied at
Halle, Jena, Berlin and Vienna universities, being accepted in
the first Masonic Lodge in Vienna. He even founded a very
active and powerful Masonic Lodge in Halle. They say that his
whole life and career were always conducted by the Masonic
code of ethics. Also, the most important Masonic Lodge in
Transylvania of the 18th century was established in Sibiu.
It was also in Vienna that the Baron started collecting important
works of art. Samuel von Brukenthal collection, listed in 1773
in Almanach de Vienne, was one of the most valuable private
collections in Vienna of those times. Since 1777, for a period of
10 years, he was the Governor of Transylvania. In 1779 he built
the elegant palace in Sibiu, as an official abode and to host his
collections. The first public exhibits were his painting collection,
a print collection, a library and a coin collection. Since its official
opening in 1817, the museum constantly increased its collections
through donations and acquisitions, now having impressive
galleries and charming thousands of visitors from all over the
world.

BRUKENTHAL HIGH SCHOOL
A SCHOOL LIKE A PALACE:
SAMUEL VON BRUKENTHAL
HIGH SCHOOL
Such a thrill! Do you remember the first day of school?
But imagine all the stories that the walls of Samuel von
Brukenthal High School might tell. This is the oldest
school in Sibiu and one of the first located on Romania’s
present day territory.
SEVEN CENTURIES OF EFFICIENT
EDUCATION
This building doesn’t look like a school on the
inside, but more like a Baroque palace adorned with
ornaments, sculptures and Latin inscriptions, old
symbols of the knowledge and educational mission
of the institution. Huge personalities of the city
attended this school – among them, Baron Samuel
von Brukenthal, who donated an important part of his
assets to the gymnasium back then and also to the
Evangelical Church.
On the premises of today’s high scoool stood the first
school in Sibiu – officially recorded in 1380. The fact
that the Evangelical Church is so close to the school
reflects the religious tutelage under which Saxon
education functioned for centuries. The building we
see today was raised between 1779-1781, at the same
time with the Brukenthal Palace in the Large Square, its
architectural sibling. The inscription above the entrance
portal states the institution’s mission: ERVDITIONI.VIRTVTI.
AC.EXEMPLIS.SACRA. – A house of culture, virtue and
models. The high school asserted over time its educative
development role, a place for multicultural meetings and
communication between the people of Sibiu.
SIBIU, ALWAYS YOUNG
In the recent years Sibiu has become a well-known
university town, a point of interest for the Romanian
youth. Higher education tradition started in Sibiu during
the 17th century with the Faculty of Theology, and then
in 1844 with the Law Academy set up by the Saxon
community. Since then, Sibiu has gradually strenghtened
its academic life, through many other higher education
institutions, now being a reputable university centre. The
universities in Sibiu are attractive through their different
and efficient educational offerings, the research and
employment opportunities, and also through their rich
cultural agenda of a city that never sleeps.

THE GREEN FRIDAY
On her stall in Huet Square, auntie Maria
lines up the dewy red-green rhubarb stems
picked-out this very morning. Well, you
probably did not know this, but sourish
rhubarb is a favorite ingredient of Saxon
cuisine, much sought after in spring.
Auntie Maria comes from Turnişor
and takes great pride in her beautiful
merchandise. And the supermarket
vegetables are not a patch on her gardengrown radishes, lettuce and green onions:
all of them lovingly planted and plowed
with her toilworn hands, not sprinkled
with any chemicals, solely watered by the
fresh rainfall from the sky. And on Green
Friday you will find many farmers and local
growers like auntie Maria enticing you with
traditional dainties: all kinds of cheese
from the neighboring herdsmen, flavoured
comfitures and steamy home-baked pies,
healthy fruit and vegetables freshly picked
from the garden, cold meats based on
sacredly guarded recipes from the olden
days.
Green Friday is the perfect opportunity to

THE LUXEMBOURG
HOUSE
THE LUXEMBOURG HOUSE IS THE PERFECT
EXAMPLE OF BLENDING BETWEEN SIBIU’S MEDIEVAL
PAST AND ITS PRESENT DYNAMICS. IN 2007, SIBIU
WAS THE EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE ALONG
WITH THE CITY OF LUXEMBOURG.
A strong spiritual bond that goes back centuries
has linked these two geographical areas, since
the first Saxon settlers arrived here in the 12th
century from the Moselle River area, a territory
that belongs to present day Luxembourg. The
vernacular Saxon in Sibiu is notably similar to
the Luxembourg spoken language.
The House, one of the oldest buildings of
the Upper Town, preserving its 13th century
architectural charm to this day, was built upon
the medieval city’s first precinct of fortifications.
The current edifice is the outcome of a 15th
century amalgamation of two Gothic dwellings,
and opens towards both Small Square and Huet
Square. It has beautiful Baroque street fronts
adorned with splendid stucco floral motifs, and
traditional carpentry windows with curved tops
and stylized shells.
Previously known as Schaser House, the
building got that name from the Evangelical
priest who used to own it in the 19th
century. It has been restored courtesy of the
Luxembourg Service of Sites and National
Monuments and received its
present name on March 30,
2004, when Grand Duke Henri
of Luxembourg and Grand
Duchess Maria Theresa
visited Romania.
Nowadays the building also houses the
Honorary Consulate of the Grand Duchy
of Luxembourg and the Resource Centre
of the European Institute for Cultural
Itineraries for Southeast Europe.

THE MEDIEVAL
SIBIU
SIBIU’S FORTIFICATIONS
One next to another, the old stronghold towers gather round the
heart of the city like a girdle of unflinching sentries. “The Red
City” – that’s how they called Sibiu because of its red clay brick
walls that kept the foes at bay. The fortifications watched over
the whole history of Hermannstadt and these walls carry the
city’s 823 years of attested history carved deep within them. By
virtue of the privileged status and the prestige of the German
residents who settled here, and also because of the permanent
invaders menace, Hermannstadt’s fortifications have evolved into
a complex and inexpugnable defensive system.
A walk along the fortifications line will take you back in time, to
the age of the far-famed guilds, fashionable gentlemen, bashful
maidens and stern executioners of Large Square.
THE MEDIEVAL SIBIU
THE TOWERS
– SIBIU’S SENTRIES –
Only 10 towers of the original fortifications,
the Passage of the Stairs, the Soldisch
Bastion, the Haller Bastion, the exterior
defense wall and the one in Cetăţii Street
have survived to this day. Next to their
military role, the towers also served as
headquarters and storehouses attended by
the guilds of old Hermannstadt, which was a
renowned craft centre, auspiciously placed
on the axis that connected Western Europe
to the Balkans and Constantinople. Today, the
the towers of Sibiu are still telling the story
of a thriving and dynamic city, shrouded in
charming myth and legend.
Our medieval journey begins in the
13th century, when the first precinct of
fortifications was erected around Huet
Square. A remnant of that age is The
Stairs’ Tower, considered to be the oldest
construction preserved in Sibiu. The second
defensive precinct surrounds the actual Small
Square. Because of the Turkish and Tartars’
assaults, over the next centuries the third
(14th century) and then the fourth (15th
century) precinct of fortifications had to be
built, in order to protect the Upper and the
Lower Town, residential areas at that time.
Like a real fortress, the city was protected
by a wetland belt of ponds, channels and
floodgates that allowed the controlled
flooding of the surroundings.

SIBIU - HERMANNSTADT / YOUNG SINCE 1191
A WALK
– ON CETĂŢII STREET –
The Cetăţii Street, overlooked by the fortified walls from the 15th
century, is Sibiu’s most romantic street. Here you will uncover history
at leisure, step by step, relishing each little corner. The three defensive
towers from the third precinct of fortifications were named after the
guilds that ensured their maintenance and defence: The Arquebusiers’
Tower, the Potters’ Tower and the Carpenters’ Tower. The old houses,
the brick wall with its watch road and the towers make up the story of
a medieval corner marvelously preserved to this day.
THEATRE AND CONCERTS
– IN THE THICK TOWER –
18th century Sibiu was a city with a Viennese air, thriving with culture.
The Brukenthal Palace was built at that time, and the city’s first theatre
was established inside one of the fortificated towers.
CELEBRITY LANE
Did you know that Sibiu has its own version of the famous
Hollywood Walk of Fame? The summer of 2013 witnessed
the opening of Celebrity Lane in Sibiu. A plethora of artists,
cultural personalities and athletes who brought fame to the
city and helped create its present cosmopolitan look will
henceforth be shining on this lane in Cetăţii Park, ideally
located between the Thick Tower which used to harbour
the first theatre in town, and the future planned theatre.
Sheltered by the stout city walls, the artists thus become
everlasting honorary citizens.
Each of these plates represents an extraordinary story
intermingled with Sibiu’s destiny. This is the city’s way to say
a symbolic “Thank You” to its personalities.
Parcul Cetăţii / Cetăţii Park
The Thick Tower, different from its tall and slender brethren, was
erected in 1540, like a citadel in itself, with several defensive levels and
firing posts. In 1788 arts replaced arms as the space was refashioned
to host the first theatre house of the city. In 1826 the hall received a
sumptuous Rococo redecoration. The first cinema projection in town
took place here in 1898. Its cultural mission still carries on, as today,
entirely rehabilitated, the Thick Tower bears Muse Thalia’s name and
hosts the State Philarmonics’ concerts.
Once you’re here, allow your senses to feast on a Philarmonics musical
performance – it’s a double delight: you’ll get to visually admire
Thalia Hall while savouring the aural harmonies of one of the greatest
Transylvanian symphonic orchestras.

THE GREEN SIBIU
DISCOVER SIBIU ON A BICYCLE IN SUB ARINI PARK
A bicycle ride on a sunny day across one of Sibiu’s
green oases: Sub Arini Park, initially opened in 1856, as
a cosy English garden with lush greenery, lawns, trails
and ponds arranged in an organic layout. Sibiu was one
of the places where the City Embellishment Society,
resurrected today, had been very active. Owing to the
Society’s efforts, the music pavilion and the spring well
were built, public lighting was introduced and the flora
has been largely enriched.
Today the most ancient trees in the park are over 150
years old, while 30 indigenous and 38 exotic species
from North America and the Far East, including the
famous ginkgo biloba, the resplendent magnolias,
the American maple tree and the Californian cypress,
provide a perfect shelter for the various birds. On
summer days, the music pavilion, reverberating to
the sound of brass bands since the days of yore, hosts
concerts in a charming ambience. Regardless of the
season, a ride on the bicycle track that stretches about 6
kilometers is a real trip to the heart of nature, where the
sounds of the city gradually fade out and give way to the
chirpy bird trills.
Parks are yet another surprising face of Sibiu, a city that
has always taken environmental protection in earnest in
its quest for an active, healthy and ecological life. From
Sub Arini Park we’ll further ride through Călăreţilor Lane
towards Dumbrava Forest. The enchanted forest!

by donation, and today the Zoo comprises 187

MUSEUM OF
TRADITIONAL FOLK
CIVILIZATION
The Museum of Traditional Folk Civilization in Sibiu is not
just a museum, it’s a whole world, a backward time travel, a
homecoming. It’s a peaceful world, governed by the traditions
and authenticity, of our fathers and forefathers. A visit to the
ASTRA Museum resembles a holiday at your grandparents’,
back to those childhood years filled with wonder
and ageless fairytales.
Covering 96 hectars of land (40 of which
cover the permanent exhibition), the museum
is the largest open-air ethnographic exhibition
in Europe and also the biggest unit of ASTRA
Museums, founded in 1963 as the Museum
of Folk Technics. It received its present name
in 1991.
Some of the over 400 monuments of folk
technique and architecture, filled with
beautiful ethnographic heritage objects,
will look familiar, while others will amaze
and reveal the beauty and richness of the
village universe. Every one of these carpets,
every handpainted detail on a clay pot,
every skillfully carved wooden beam carries
at the same time an artistic and a symbolic
statement. Here you have the human soul
embodied in matter.
THE MUSEUM CELEBRATES
THE VILLAGE LIFESTYLE AS
A SYNTHESIS OF ROMANIAN
TRADITIONAL CIVILISATION
AT ITS UTMOST SPECIFICITY:
WOODEN CHURCHES
AND MILLS, TRADITIONAL
HOMESTEADS, TOOLS AND
HOUSEHOLD OBJECTS.
The six thematic exhibitions with several
groups and subgroups mark out the symbiosis
of arts, crafts, utility and spirituality in the
rural world. A highlight of the museum in
Sibiu and the most complete collection
in the whole country is the folk industry
installations collection, comprising food,
lumber, mining, metallurgical and apparel
@Sebastian Marcovici
industry installations. You can not fail
to be impressed by the windmill in
the fisherman’s homestead or by the
craftsmen’s workshops which are still going
strong.
In recent years the museographers shifted
their focus towards the imaterial heritage
zone, and therefore the dwellings have
turned into living spaces where people
revive the olden lifestyle and trades.
Numerous educational and cultural
programs succeeding one another bring
to public attention a series of valuable
craftsmen, singular people that are today
considered living heritage, according to
the UNESCO paradigm. Thus comes alive
a soulful and wise museum that has so
many stories to tell. The ASTRA Museum
of Traditional Folk Civilisation lives and
breathes.
