realy beautiful and good renovatet City, of course lots of other tourists but the old City is a must if you are there. a Little bit ca. 15 KM in the east is a campground, Near the Center are a lot of parkinglots not expensive.

A UNESCO World Heritage site for its restored center, Sibiu is a charming place to experience Transylvania - just don't expect to find any vampires.

Sibiu is a wonderful place in Transylvania. It reminds me a lot of Brasov with its medieval center. It was the European Culture Capital in 2007 and was named by Forbes one of the top idyllic places to live in ! http://www.forbes.com/2008/11/18/europe-homes-dollar-forbeslife-cx_po_1118realestate_slide_4.html It can be reached by car, bus, train or plane.
