Sibiu was our first stop after leaving Bucharest. These wonderful buildings were built by the Saxons. They began building in the 13th century although the area has had a settlement since the Stone Age. The Saxons called their city Hermannstadt. They were German settlers who came to Transylvania at the behest of the Hungarian Kings. Doesn’t this square remind you of Prague?
We climbed up the town hall tower at dusk to get this shot. The tower of the former Catholic church which is taller was closed for repairs. That was good as climbing the tower with both of my cameras weighing me down was not easy. Daniel flew up the stairs, pausing now and then to wait for me and I did my best not to slow him down. We both knew the light was fading fast.
