Sibiu (Hermannstadt in German) is a city in Transylvania with a population of 147000 inhabitants. It is located in the plains, immediately north of the southern Carpathian mountain range. Sibiu has a very elegant and beautiful historic core, surrounded by city walls and centered around Piata Mare (the Great square), a large rectangular square measuring 140m x 90m. On this square are a number of significant buildings, such as the Brukenthal museum, the city hall and the Council tower. The old town contains several other historic buildings and churches.
Sibiu has been primarily shaped by the Transylvanian Saxons, who immigrated into the country in the 13th century and until the 20th century were the largest ethnic group in Sibiu.
