The Christmas Market in Sibiu, Romania

Sibiu was voted the European Cultural City in 2007. It’s a beautiful city in the heart of Romania. It’s known for Germanic architecture in its old town, the legacy of 12th-century Saxon settlers. Around the city are the remains of medieval walls and towers, including the 13th-century Council Tower. In the upper town, Brukenthal Palace now houses the Brukenthal National Museum, with European paintings. The nearby Evangelical Cathedral has gravestones in its walls.(Wikipedia)


I am really exited about exploring Sibiu in specially now during the Christmas Holiday.

It was a bit of a journey for me, I left around 9am from Zalau to Cluj and from Cluj another 5 hours till Sibiu by coach.

I have arrived somewhere in the afternoon, just in time to catch some daylight and also to enjoy the Christmas lights.

Beautiful city, you don’t need a tour guide or a path to walk, because everywhere you look it looks amazing. Brilliant old architecture, well preserved buildings, it feels like going back in time.

Every click you take with your camera it turns out to be a stunning photo.

Just like in any Christmas Market the presence of good food is there, lively atmosphere and cool light-shows.

After spending a couple of hours in the city centre enjoying the lights, food and the old town, I walk to my Airbnb place, drink a good coffee and well…I am getting old, I did manage to fall asleep. By the time I walk back to the city, the market is slowly closing down, I am really disappointed in myself but, lucky enough I have time the next day till 12pm to explore a bit more the city in daylight so I am happy with that.

A destination where I will surely come back again, Sibiu is my favorite city so far.

As per the Christmas Market it is in the top, if not, the best Christmas Market I have seen so far.

Next destination will be Sighisoara, but before that I will explore the city a little bit more, so make sure to SUBSCRIBE cause the details of the stunning old town in Sibiu is yet to come.

Thank you for watching.



The Best Christmas destination in Romania

Once again it is the season to be jolly! Only a few days till Christmas and I am really pumped about this one. I haven’t been home for Christmas for the past 3 years and I missed a bit of a snow, carol nights, good old friends and being home with family, so really looking forward to it.

I have seen the brilliant Christmas market in Birmingham, Paris, Colmar and a few other locations, but I wonder what Christmas markets and Winter Wonderlands has Romania to offer. This is exactly what I have been trying to find out in a 7 day trip in 7 locations around Transylvania.

There are many beautiful places in Romania with great winter locations and Christmas traditions, but for now I explored only seven locations in Transylvania, including my hometown.

Here is a glimpse into my trip, follow my here on blog, subscribe to my YouTube Channel, follow me on my Instagram as for the next couple of days I will post videos and photos about each one of the locations. Thank you.
