The NeighborhoodThe Lower Town (German: Unterstadt, Romanian: Oraşul de jos ) was developed around the earliest fortifications. The streets are long and quite wide for medieval city standards, with small city squares at places. The architecture is rustic: typically two-storey houses with tall roofs and gates opening passages to inner courts.
The Old city part is known for its nice old buildings but also for some good food and cafes and nightlife spots.
The 9 Mai Street is part of the historical and architectural heritage of Sibiu. It is the oldest street of the town, being called for a long time ’’Elisabeta” Street.
Our house is quiet but just few streets away from some of the best nightlife in Sibiu: in summer there are plenty of pubs and bars with terrace in the little square, which is just 5 minute walk away from our apartment.
For attractions, sightseeing, tours recommendations please visit the official website of the town, which is both in english and german translated.
