The central square is big. This is good place to people watch, or pigeon watch, whichever you prefer. Surrounded by tourist trap shops and café style eateries, it is an interesting place architecturally. Make sure your stroller, luggage or anything else has large rubber wheels as the area is paved with cobble stone.

It is a pleasant square, slightly reminiscent of Warsaw and a number of other Eastern European cities There is a small market selling furs and souvenirs Picturesque and worthy of a visit

Many local people would recommend that you should visit the Big Square in Sibiu and it's totally worth it. Very often there are some events or cultural shows/fares that brings the square to life. I would recommend to visit it during the night as well.

This is the very heart of Sibiu, the crossroads of everything. A very nice place to drink a coffee and simply enjoy watching people passing by.

Standing in the center of the square, you can spin in a circle and find examples of Baroque, Gothic, and Medieval architecture. During the holidays you'll also find a market and activities for the children.
