The small Square in the centre of the historic city is connected with the Large Square by the arches under the clocktower. The Little Square is the second largest square in the old town. From the Small Square a road goes down under the Bridge of Lies to the Lower City .
At the east and northside of the square in the past the master craftsmen had their houses with arcades in front.Today you can find lots of small shops and cafes around the square. Also the Museum of Pharmacy, the Museum 'Emil Sigerus', the Museum 'Franz Binder' and the Art House are located at the Small Square. From the Goldsmith's Tower (1567) you can take the Goldsmiths Passage to the lower tower.
Around the Small Square are lots of bars and restaurants. A nice place to eat, to drink and relax after a stroll in the old town. During our visit in 2010 we ended up here several times, also in the evening.
Together with Main Square and Huet Square, “Piata Mica”-The Little Square, is one of the central points of interests in Sibiu. They are linked by narrow streets and passages and are giving together the charm of Sibiu.
It is bordered by beautiful buildings like Luxembourg House, Arts House, Council Tower, Hermes House-Museum Franz Binder, History of Pharmacy Museum, Parochial House, Goldsmiths Guild House, Liars Bridge and a lot of other old houses, having all of them a nice architecture, a long history and a lot of legends behind their walls.
What I found very interesting is that, in Luxembourg House, which is now the Cultural Center of Luxembourg, when Grand Duke Henri de Luxembourg has visited the city in 2004, he discussed with the local people in the “Luxembourgish”.
This is the clear argument that the local people came here in twelfth century from Moselle Valley in Luxembourg.
Piaţa Mica, the Small Square, is the second of Sibiu's three town squares. It is flanked by interesting medieval buildings including the Council Tower, the Hermes House, the Museum of Pharmacy, the Franz Binder Museum, the 14th century Arts House and the sixteenth century Goldsmith's Tower. The Liars' Bridge is in one corner of the square. Piaţa Mica seemed to me to be the square that the local townspeople use the most as a functioning meeting place. Sibiu's lively Christmas market is held here.
You can get great views of the square from the Council Tower.
The Small Square is the second largest historic place of Sibiu and one of the most beautiful square in town. From the Small Square a road goes beneath the Council Tower and goes straight below the Liars' Bridge. Here in the Small Square you will find well preserved medieval buildings and a few more passages connecting it to the Big Square. Museum of Pharmacy, Museum 'Emil Sigerus' and Museum 'Franz Binder' are located here, as well as The Art House and the Goldsmith's Tower (1567) that connects the square with the lower tower through the Goldsmiths Passage, one of the most beautiful places in town. Don't miss the pubs near the Luxembourg House.News:The whole pavement of the Small Square, as well as the Liars' Bridge, was totally rebuilt with regard to the year of 2007. The look and feel is different now more than ever (what I've been used to see in my childhood).
Historic place full of old buildings that preserve its aspect since 15th century.Picturesques and colored houses look to the square with eyes mid-opened. Must be remembered The Art House,the old Butchers House built in 14th century,beautiful house with arches used for temporary exhibitions. Now under reconstruction,it will host The Transylvanian Civilization Museum. Another attraction points: the Goldsmith`s Tower (1567) that make the connection with the Lower Town throgh Goldsmith`s Passage. Must not forget the Liars Bridge ( a place where, whatever you say is considered untrue),built in 1860,a true lace in iron.
