    Renovated in 2009 from the former Hotel Bulevard, located at the start of the pedestrian street (Nicolae Balcescu Street).

    Two things you should know:

    1-most of the rooms have ensuite bathroom separated only by semi-transparent glass; maybe cool if you stay with your friend but inconfortable otherwise as there is minimum privacy when using the bathroom; also the lack of a wall separation may result in water leak to the (blue) carpet of the room;

    2-blue blue blue blue: blue bed, blue carpet, blue door, blue walls, blue furniture - kind of nice for the Smurfs lovers but kind of tiring visually otherwise;

    Unique Quality: Location is perfect, 4 stars hotel, 135 rooms, wellness club (fitness, massage, jacuzzi, small sauna - no swimming pool though).

    Check the website to see pictures of the hotel.

Purchasing bus tickets

by RedHeadRomeo

I will be in Sibiu for several days and would like to take a bus to some of the villages to the west. How do I go about purchasing bus tickets? Do I just go to the station beforehand or is there a time in advance I need to purchase? I visited the bus website but it's in Romanian when I try to advance purchase.

Thank you and I look forward to visiting next week!

Hi, did you try the official website www.sibiu.ro ? They also have versions in English and German. They have a lot of tourist information, including infos about getting around.
Try this page: http://www.turism.sibiu.ro/en/deplasare.htm
Here you should find everything about local transport.

Should you try the tursib page, well this is in Romanian, but the following overview nevertheless, should be helpful:
http://www.tursib.ro/index.php?page=22
They have different selling points (=puncte de vanzare),
they show the table of office hours (=orar),
and the word "inchis" means "closed" ;-)

Well, I hope this will help you ...

No need to book tickets in advance, you can get them at the bus station but be there with at least 15-20 minutes before the bus leaves.

Tursib is Sibiu's urban transport operator, all its routes (except one) are located inside the city. The buses to villages around Sibiu are mostly operated by Transmixt ( http://www.transmixt.ro/ ); the site does have an online booking tool (click on "Rezervari On-Line") but it doesn't actually work, it only shows the timetable.

Re: Purchasing bus tickets

by RedHeadRomeo

Thank you. I've been to the site and it does give the times and have been using it to evaluate travel options.

On that note, I've been thinking of visiting the Marginimea Sibiului area. Anyone have opinions? I'd like to visit a couple via the bus system rather than renting a car. Do I purchase a ticket for each stop? Say I want to visit Poiana Sibiului but would like to stop in Saliste? Can I buy a ticket for the Poinana and stop in Saliste? Or would I need to purchase separate tickets?

Thank you if you can provide any information.

Re: Purchasing bus tickets

by taseg

You have to buy separate tickets for each part of the trip (one ticket for Sibiu to Saliste and another one from Saliste to Poiana Sibiului).

Travel Tips for Sibiu

The city...

by alirom

Sibiu, also Saxon in origin, is a very pretty town, with cobbled streets and pastel colored houses. The open air Museum of Folk Technology in woodland by a lake is a "must" to visit, just as the Brukenthal Art Museum, while the town is well placed for excursions to mountain villages, such as Sibiel, where there is a fascinating museum of icons. Further away near Deva stands the Corvin Castle, rebuilt in the 15th century in Gothic style by Prince Iancu Corvin, who gave it a sumptuous Knights Hall and towers and buttresses that remind one of the Chateaux de la Loire.

House of George Bariţiu

by iwys

George Bariţiu, also known as George Barit, was one of Sibiu's most famous residents. He was born in Cluj in 1812 but spent most of his life in Sibiu, where he died in 1893. He was a pioneering journalist and leader of the Transylvanian Romanians. In 1838 he founded the weekly Gazeta de Transilvania (The Gazette of Transylvania), the first political newspaper for the Romanians of Transylvania. His published works include Romanian-Hungarian and Romanian-German dictionaries. He is remembered most of all for the major role he played in the Romanian nationalist movement.

There is a plaque on the fading baroque building where he lived, in Strada Andrei Saguna.

Beyond Piata Mare

by Mr_Furious

Beyond Piata Mare and Piata Huet there are some small alleyways that connect the upper town with the lower town. These alleys are very picturesque and it is a very fine area with beautiful architecture.

Brukenthal Palace

by Fam_Stoica

The Brukenthal Palace is one of the most remarkable monuments in late baroque style in Romania. It was erected between 1778-1788 as an official residence for Samuel von Brukenthal and as a shelter for his collections. Some of its specific elements are the decorum of the façade with the Brukenthal’s coat of arms, garlands, rosettes, stone flower bunches, artistic carpentry, wall-cotton and silk, locksmith’s elements (door handles, door bolts), faience stoves and candelabras .

Today, the Brukenthal Palace houses the Art Gallery and the Brukenthal Library.

The Brukenthal Museum is one of the greatest Romanian museums. Its collections were constituted by baron Samuel von Brukenthal (1721-1803), governor of Transylvania between 1777-1787. In 1790 (three years before the Louvre was opened) the collections of Samuel von Brukenthal could be visited. The official opening of the museum took place on the 25th of February 1817; it is the first museum in Romania that has been functioning ever since.

Museum of Traditional Romanian Civilization

by codrutz

Astra Museum of Traditional Romanian CivilizationI strongly recommend a visit to this great museum.Allow at least three hours and note that the museum is at the outskirts (south) of Sibiu, in the Dumbrava forest. You can take a taxi or the local tram to go there. It will be an unique experience for western European or American tourists, because it features very rustic rural households with all that great wooden equipments for daily and specialized use of the various crafts that used to be done in different regions of Romania. The museum features 146 households and annexes, over 96 hectares of land. The park where the museum is arranged features also a zoo.
