Sibiu and Around

Sibiu in Romanian, Hermannstadt in German and Nagyszeben in Hungarian is another old Saxon city in Transylvania. It not as big as Braşov, the population reaches 137 000, but and there is an international airport. (I flew back home from Sibiu.) Like Braşov, the character is distinctively Central European. The atmosphere is also similar, but Sibiu did not impress me equally much as Braşov. Maybe because I had acquired a cold when I got here, maybe because it was my third Saxon city after Braşov and Sighişoara. Or maybe because renovation has not comes as far in Sibiu as it has in the other two cities.

I arrived two days before my return flight, but I did not spend all time in the city. Instead I took the occasion to go outside to see some smaller towns and also take a walk on the lower slopes of the mountains south of Sibiu.
