Sibiu (Hermannstadt in German) was the largest and wealthiest of the seven walled citadels built in the 12th century by German settlers known as Transylvanian Saxons. The riches amassed by its guilds paid for the construction of both impressive buildings and the fortifications required to protect them.
Sibiu’s Old Town retains the grandeur of its earlier days when rich and powerful guilds dominated regional trade. Like Sighisoara and Braşov, it has a distinctly Germanic feeling. Sections of the medieval wall still guard the historic area, where narrow streets pass steep-roofed 17th century buildings with gable overhangs before opening into vast, church-dominated squares such as Great Square and Little Square. Sibiu is a pedestrian-friendly city with two easily accessible levels: the Upper town, home to most of Sibiu's historic sight, and the Lower town, lined with colorful houses on cobblestone streets and bounded by imposing city walls and defense towers overlooking the river Cibin. Tradiţionally, the Upper town was the wealthier part and commercial outlet, while the Lower town served as the manufacturing area. The historical centre includes the Great Square, Huet Square, the beautiful Passage of Steps connecting the upper town to the lower town, the well-known Bridge of Lies, Goldsmiths’ Square and the Small Square.

Then we go on to Braşov (Kronstadt ) called the “city of the crown “, an important cultural medieval centre, where in the 16th century were printed the first books in omanian. Guided city tour of Braşov:starting from the wonderful Council Square we will have a guided tour of the historic centre, enhanced by civil and religious buildings, such as the Black Church, the largest Gothic church in Romania, the Council House built in the 15th century, rebuilt after the Great Fire of 1689 in Baroque style, the St. Nicolas Church combining the Gothic style outside with the Byzantine style inside, the Museum of the First Romanian School from Scheii Braşovului hiding a great treasure of books and old manuscripts, the Ecaterina and Schei Gates, separating the Romanians from the Saxons.
