"Old places have souls" - Sarah Andreson
| ENGLISH |
Is it too late to say "Welcome" to December? Hopefully not, because I'm gonna say it anyways: "Welcome December!". It's the month of lights, snow and feasts. A time to make amends and tie up loose ends. A time to finish what you started and hope that your dreams come true. Yes, I know I'm a little late for this month's article but hey, better later than never, right?
This article is going to be about my trip to the beautiful city of Sibiu.
Before we get started, here are some photographs that are worth a thousands words.
I once heard someone call Sibiu "The city where the houses don't sleep" and I though "wow! what an interesting approach". I must tell, this city has a very unique style, it has a distinctly Germanic feeling. All you need is a little bit of imagination and you will see more than buildings on the streets, if you focus you can see "faces". It can sound scary but it's actually really cool!
Colorful & creative, the city of Sibiu.
Beautiful on the outside and also on the inside. Here are some pictures from the Evangelical Cathedral. This impressive structure, featuring five pointed towers, was built in 1520 on the site of an old Roman basilica.
Other places that must be seen in Sibiu are the history museum and the Brukenthal Palace, where you will find one of Romania's most important art collections. This place reminded me of the Schonbrunn Palace from Vienna. As you can tell, this place really has that Germanic feeling I mentioned earlier.
Of course I took the opportunity to create an outfit post out of this Travel article. Here are the photos:
The romanian & spanish version of the article coming soon.
