Sibiu, the Old Town
(2006)
Sibiu, the Old Town
In Sibiu the old town developed around three historic squares: Piata Mare (Large Square), Piata Mica (Small Square), and Piata Huet, named after Albert Huet, Governor of Transylvania between 1577 and 1607.

Dating back to the 14th century, Piata Mare was host to the town's market fair. The gallows, pillory, and a "fools' cage" were also laid out in this square. Colorful houses dating back to the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries surround the square.

This is the portal of the National Brukenthal Museum, hosted in the Brukenthal Palace, former residence of Samuel von Brukenthal, Governor of Transylvania between 1777 and 1787. The museum opened to the public in 1817. It is home to numerous Dutch, Flemish, German, Austrian, Italian, Romanian, etc. paintings, up to a total of 10,000 pieces.

On the portal you can see Samuel von Brukenthal's gilded coat of arms.
