I. “SIBIU 825” CLASSIC TOUR (1.30 -2.30h)
This year Sibiu celebrates 825 years from its birth. For more than 2 hours we shall discover the town of Sibiu as it was formed during the centuries: from a little fortress led by a courageous knight, to one of the most important fortresses in Transylvania, a trade center, cultural town in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the third town where the Revolution burst in 1989 and, presently, a Romanian and European cultural center. Let’s celebrate Sibiu together!
The visit includes: Cetăţii street (with its former towers, walls and bastions), The Schiller Square, the Goldsmith Square, The Little Square (with its Council Tower, the famous Liars’ Bridge, the House of Arts, the Luxembourg House), The Huet Square (the Evangelical Church, the House of Journeymen), The Stairs Passage, the Altemberger House (The History Museum), the Centumviri Street, the Orthodox Cathedral, the Mitropoliei Street, The Large Square (with its sites: the Brukenthal Museum, the Town Hall, the Romano-Catholic Church, the Haller House, the Blue House).
If you have more time we invite you to visit the traditional market in Sibiu – with fruit, vegetables, meat and cheese coming directly from the local producers.
A special place we suggest is the Open Air Museum, the biggest ethnographic museum in Romania, located in a forest, on the bank of a lake. It is a picturesque place that recreates the traditional Romanian village with all its elements (households, craftsmen and artisans houses and workshops, wooden churches, wind and water mills).
II. SIBIU FUSION TOUR & TASTE (4.00-5.00 h) – NEW 2017!
During its 800 years, Sibiu became a “Transylvanian Mecca” for all the ethnic groups and colonists coming here for living and trading. They brought with them their traditions and customs and shared them with the inhabitants. Three main ethnic groups (Romanians, Saxons and Hungarians) co-existed in these parts; to them, we may add Greeks, Jews, Turks and different nomadic groups. They all had a great influence on our culture and civilisation.
Sibiu became a place of multiculturalism and ethnic plurality. Gastronomy was, without any doubt, one of the domains that inherited a bit from each of the ethnic groups – a great fusion of tastes.
We invite you to a “delicious tour” – we’ll explore the historical area of the town and we’ll have some “food stops” to try some special local dishes, learn their story and enjoy a pleasant atmosphere. The places where we’ll stop are not randomly chosen…They are special places with amazing stories.
This tour is an introduction to 2019 when Sibiu will be European Region of Gastronomy!
Let’s tour & taste!
III. THE LEGENDS OF THE FORTRESS – a special tour for children and teenagers (1.30-2.00h)
We invite the little ones to a special visit in Sibiu – the town of legends and great stories! For almost 2 hours, we’ll learn about the famous Herman – a brave knight who built the fortress, the Saxon colonists, the great battles in the citadel, we’ll talk about noblemen, kings and queens, we’ll learn how the liars were punished and we’ll listen to stories about witches and hardworking craftsmen.
We promise you it would be an unforgettable visit, an interactive tour in which we’ll discover a „different” Sibiu.
