Sibiu is an historical city located in the Transylvania region of Romania. Situated in a territory that has been heavily disputed, it has inherited quite a cultural legacy, having been occupied by both the Hungarians and the Turks. Sibiu lies in the shadow of the nearby snow-capped Carpathians. It has an Old City, which is surrounded by a medieval wall with towers and gates. It is also notable for its museums chronicling the city's history. The many churches of different styles are also worth viewing for those that love of fine architecture. Sibiu was also chosen as the European Capital of Culture in 2007. If you would like to experience Eastern Europe, as you never have before, then choose to fly with Austrian Airlines to Sibiu, and have a great time!
