Sibiu, Romania is a true European Cultural Capital

Updated: September 11, 2017

Sibiu, RomaniaEver since Sibiu was designated European Cultural Capital for 2007, this became a really big deal in Romania. Everybody was talking about it and lots of money was invested in remodeling the old city center. Regardless what people say, I believe that the city did an amazing job with the remodeling. Sibiu’s Large Square looks on par if not better than other large European cities.
