Sibiu is one of Romania's cultural and tourism landmarks, attracting tourists all over the world due to its wonderful medieval charm, excellent views of the surrounding landscapes, delicious local food, and stunning parkland!
A former European Capital of Culture in 2007, Sibiu has since focused on its vivid cultural life, also developing its touristic profile. Alongside its other valuable assets, traditions had an important role in shaping Sibiu as a viable touristic destination, food culture being one of the main attractions of the region. This is why the city was also designated European Region of Gastronomy in 2019.
