Attractions in Sibiu

The Council Tower (Turnul Sfatului)

No. 1, Little Square

It is one of Sibiu's most famous monuments. It was built in the 13th century and was used as an entrance gate to the second row of fortified walls built around Sibiu. Throughout its existence, the tower served as a grain storehouse, a fire watchtower, a temporary prison and even as a museum of botany.

Brukenthal Palace (Palatul Brukental)

The stunning Brukenthal Palace was built between 1778-1785 by a Viennese architect in a refined late-baroque style. It is home to the Brukenthal Museum (Muzeul Brukenthal), the oldest and one of the finest art museums in the country.

Natural History Museum

The museum was started in 1849 and features more than 1.000.000 items on display, representing areas such as geology, paleontology, botanics and zoology.

The Bridge of Lies (Podul Minciunilor)

It was built in 1859, by Fredericus Hutte, and was the first wrought iron bridge in Romania. It is one of Sibiu's most important symbols and it is a favorite strolling place for young couples. The bridge stands out due to its resistance pieces decorated with rosettes and a belt of elements placed in circles with decreasing sizes and adorned with vegetal and neo-gothic geometric motifs.

Goldsmiths’ Square (Piata Aurarilor)

It is a peaceful and intimate square surrounded by charming old houses with medieval windows, doorways and turrets. It has been, for many years, the main point of passage between the Little Square and the Lower Town.
