Sibiu is a town in southern Transylvania, Romania 282 km from Bucharest. The city's historical centre has been recently renovated in 2006 and looks spectacular.
Sibiu is well connected to Bucharest and Cluj Napoca. From Cluj Napoca there are buses almost every hour, provided by Dacos, Fany and Transmixt, taking around 3.5 h. The buses are smooth-running, very comfortable and cheap.
There are 3 direct IRs from Bucharest (5h 40mins) and one Re that takes 8h. From Brasov there are 7 traines daily and from Cluj-Napoca there are no direct trains but connections through Copsa Mica , Medias or Vintu de Jos
The train schedule changes every summer and winter so it is better to check it online.
If you're not coming to Sibiu from another Romanian town, plane is an excellent option, as there are direct connections to Sibiu International Airport from many European cities, especially those in Germany and Italy.
Carpatair, Transylvania's largest airline, offers daily connections to Munich, Bergamo and Treviso, and connections three times a week to Bologna, Verona, Rome and Stuttgart.
TAROM, Romania's national carrier, as well as LUFTHANSA flies five times a week from Sibiu to Munich and also five times a week to Vienna. For those with money to splurge, there are also flights three times a week to Bucharest, even though you're better off taking the train if you're coming from inside Romania. There are frequent specials, though, so look at the TAROM website before deciding one way or the other.
Blue Air, direct low cost flights to Cologne, Stuttgart and Madrid.
Sibiu, a city of 170,000 people, seems quite large for its population, even though most tourists won't have to venture outside the conveniently-walkable city central area. In fact, try to walk as much as you can, as only in this way can you sample Sibiu's more remote gems, hidden behind lanes in the middle of the city and crooked, cobbled alleys taking you a step back in history.
Bike rentals are available also from the info centre at Casa Luxembourg on Piața Mică. Guides bike tours are offered to explore the surrounding area by mountain bike, but the prices are too high compared to other places.
If you do need to venture outside the medieval city limits, the local public transport operator TurSib offers reliable services. These services may be useful if you're staying in hotels, pensions or homestays outside the city centre or would like to visit some of the wonderful villages surrounding Sibiu, for a taste of Romanian country life and stunning Transylvanian scenery.
What to see
The old town The old medieval town is perhaps Sibiu's main attraction, and it is indeed very beautiful. Most of the buildings in the old town were built by German settlers and merchants who came to Sibiu in the late Middle Ages. Today, the buildings remain in very good conditions, and the streets are peppered with small, secluded lanes, corner cafes and wonderful churches.
The Citadel of Sibiu The Citadel of Sibiu was, in the Middle Ages, one of the best fortified in Europe and today remains very well preserved. The towers and bastions of the area are well worth a visit, but most of all, make sure you visit the wonderfully charming Stairs Passage, which connects the lower part of the citadel with the upper part.
The Brukenthal Museum, Said by many to be the second best museum in Romania (after the National Art Museum in the capital Bucharest), the Brukenthal is a must see in Sibiu, containing 1090 paintings. The museum is named after Samuel Brukenthal, the governor of Transylvania.
Outlying attractions In addition to Sibiu's wonderful historical and cultural attractions, the city has a nice green area within walking/cycling distance from the city centre. Cisnădie can easily be reached through Natural park Dumbrava Sibiului on quiet roads. Paying a visit to some more outlying attractions enables you to sample the amazing Transylvanian environment.
Balea lake, a wonderfull glacier lake about 50 kilometers south east from Sibiu right off from the road to Brasov.
