Built in 1802 in traditional baroc style, square base with a large interiour courtyard, this house has the most intricate door in Sibiu. "Casa cu Cariatide" can be found on Mitropoliei Street, near the Metropolitan Church.

Built in the 15th century, property of Baron vonMoringer, this house is distinctive by its blue color and the nice late baroc facade. During the times it served to many purposes, curently is part of Brukenthal Museum.

Best known for the highest tower in Transylvania (73.34 meters), which is a misleading fact as the highest tower in the region is actually that of Bistrita Evangelical Church, the Evangelical Church (in German: Evangelische Stadtpfarrkirche in Hermannstadt) from Huet Square is arguably the symbol of Sibiu.
Construction works for the Cathedral started in the 14th century on the site of a Roman basilica in a Gothic Style. The current shape of the church is the result of several changes brought to it throughout the years (and is currently, in June 2011, undergoing rehabilitation works). A detail of its architecture, the four little towers symbolised at the moment of the construction that Sibiu had ius gladi (the "right of the sword" = the right to judge and to issue death sentences).
The organ is another reason of pride for this parish as it seams to be the largest one in South-Eastern Europe(?). It is composed of 6000 pipes and 78 ranks.
The Samuel von Brukenthal Baron was buried here in 1803, as an exception to the rule enacted in 1796 which stated that no more burial places were to be built in the Cathedral.
In front of the Cathedral was placed a statue of Bishop Georg Daniel Teutsch in 1899.

At one point in time, Sibiu was one of Europe's best-fortified churches and was surrounded by defensive walls guarded by thirty-nine towers (each tower was operated by a different guild). Today you can stroll alongside these walls and examine the towers, especially in the urban park known as Citadel Park (Parcul Cetatii). The first photo shows the Potters' Tower, located on Str. Cetatii (actually, right in Parcul Cetatii). The round tower in my second picture is the Carpenters' Tower, on the same street.

Sibiu is famous for a unique architectural feature on many of its buildings: eye-shaped windows. Actually known as "dormer" windows, these "eyes of the city" look down on pedestrians in the three main piatas, as well as in other parts of the city. Keep YOUR eyes peeled for these "eyes" while you're in Sibiu!

Someone working at Sibiu's History Museum has all the right connections, as it looks like more money was poured into this place than the entire rest of the city. Anyone interested in curatorship, exhibit design or, yes, Transylvanian history should make this a top stop while they're in Sibiu. Exhibits begin by taking visitors back in time to the prehistoric era, where they can see how Transylvanian cavemen lived. From there you move forward in time, with a large portion of the museum focused on the city's rich medieval and Renaissance history. I was particularly fascinated by the translations of guild documents- besides being presented beautifully the translations gave great insight into life as a guild member, where the simplest of infractions could get you removed from the guild... or much, much worse!

It is the best Gothic building in Romania, as far as I know and it was built back in 1520.
It is far “above” the Black Church in Brasov, which is much better promoted.
The tower is rising at more than 73 meters, being one of the highest towers in the City.
Very impressive is the gallery with 67 tombstones, unique in Romania. You’ll see there the name of all city’s personalities, the most known ones: Samuel von Brukenthal, Mihnea Voda cel Rau.

This is not an usual view for Romania.
I haven't seen too many caryatids in Romania and perhaps this is why I have spent few minutes in front of it.
Cariatid's House was built in 1786 in late Baroque style by the widow of Georg Bethlen.
In the nineteenth century, the locals called it "The stone virgins."
