In 2007, Sibiu had the honor to be the European Capital of Culture. According to a report, in that year 337 projects have been presented in Sibiu and 2062 events have taken place in the city.
Despite the fact that 95% of the population is Romanian the city has preserved and maintained the German and Austro-Hungarian influences, with the German population still having an important involvement in the community.
A city of culture, blessed with great cultural and art monuments, museums and events, Sibiu offers its visitors the experience to taste, feel, hear, touch and see culture culture in its most profound and simple ways.
The Historic Center is home to the most beautiful squares and defense walls and towers left from the Middle Ages and preserved by the community and true treasures of the city.
Another important touristic sight is the The Brukenthal National Museum, known as the oldest museum in Romania the Brukenthal National Museum is a complex of five museums: the Brukenthal Palace, The museum of Pharmacy, The Altemberger House Museum of History, the Museum of Natural History and The "August von Spiess" Museum of Hunting. This complex is a must see!
Another museum that in the past years had the joy of receiving an large numbers of tourists is The "ASTRA" Museum of the Traditional Folkloric Civilization. The open air museum is situated 4 kilometers from the city and it is dedicated to the Romanian folklore with collections of old traditional houses, churches and other structures from all the corners of Romania. Inside the buildings the rooms are recreated so that visitors can enjoy a real traditional Romanian experience.
Sibiu is also a green city with a lot of parks and gardens; Sub Arini Park, Dumbrava Sibiului National Park and as mentioned above the ASTRA museum as an green open air museum.
All of this and more have helped this city become the center of European culture in 2007 and I must say it was a good call and a wonderful host!
