This tour comes in three options:
Three-star Sibui Break, Four-star Sibui Break or Five-star Sibui Break. The tours are identical, except for the difference between three, four and five-star accommodation in Sibui.
Day 1: Bucharest Airport- Sibui:
You will be picked up from the Bucharest airport by your English-speaking guide in an air-conditioned European car and transferred to the medieval city of Sibui, one of Romania’s finest medieval cities, containing one of the largest concentrations of tourist attractions in the country.
Sibiu, a former European capital of culture, is built on two
levels—the 'upper town', which contains most of Sibiu's historic sights, and the 'lower tower', which is a labyrinth of old houses and cobbled squares.
Visit the major attractions of Sibui:
• The Brukenthal Palace: Built at the end of the 18th century at the behest of the governor of Transylvania, it is now a national museum. This grand baroque structure reigns over the west side of the Grand Square in Sibiu, and houses the works of famous artists like Rubens, Van Dyck, and Frans Snyder. It also has an impressive collection of valuable silverware, religious objects, ancient manuscripts, and captivating old photographs of Sibiu.
• The Evangelical Cathedral: This is an exemplary piece of Gothic architecture and is the tallest building in Transylvania. The son of Vlad the Impaler, Prince Minhea the Evil, was stabbed to death outside the cathedral in 1510 after an uprising by the Wallachian aristocracy. Prince Mihnea the Evil’s tomb can be visited inside the Cathedral.
There are plenty of options for an unforgettable evening in Sibiu – theatre, lively pubs, excellent restaurants offering the delicious traditional Saxon cuisine, shops, and discos.
Overnight in Sibui at a three, four or five-star accommodation (depending on the option chosen).
Day 2: Exploring Sibui – Bucharest Airport:
After a Swedish buffet breakfast at your hotel, set out once more on a sightseeing tour of Sibui.
Visit the Village Museum, which is one of the largest open-air museums in Eastern Europe, housing peasant settlements from all over Romania. It chronicles the history of Romania’s peasant settlements and features great examples of rural architecture.
A walk in the historic center will put your honesty to test – admire the Bridge of Liar, built in 1859, the very first wrought-iron bridge in Romania. Legend says that the bridge will collapse should anyone utter any lie while crossing it.
In the evening transfer to Bucharest Airport where your tour ends.
