It's a beautiful square, but not very impressive, if compared to others. Charming anyway, with local sellers and don't forget about the pigeons!

Numerous cafes, and also benches permit you to see life in this city. While we were there, cars were moved into the square- it is our impression that they were new- and for sale.

The square is a perfect place for people watching and appreciating the architecture. Some touristy hawkers are present but are not aggressive. The tourist info center is right here for getting a walking map. Tons of cafe and restaurants.

This is the heart of Old Sibiu and it is a very large and impressive square with a number of historic buildings and churches and a number of restaurants. From the square you can walk through some of the old alley ways to the side streets.

Though it was raining off and on the square was active. Locals were enjoying themselves along with the visitors, until the down pour hit. Then every one scrambled for the umbrellas and a drink. Fun place I would imagine in the summer.

Big Square along with Small Square two places we always visit when we are in Sibiu or just pass by; the whole vibe is great no matter the season, sunshine or rain; bookstores, restaurant, coffee shops it's all there, even a grocery store! :) 6 stars, best Square in Romania :)

If you travel to Sibiu you must see Piata Mare (Big Square). You can find lot of restaurants, cafe, an important museum, shops. It is a good place for meeting, walkings.

I felt like in "Friends": staying every day at the same table and at the same restaurant, but the surroundings are far more attractive.

Less restaurants and cafes to choose, nice big space for people to walking across to each ally, each of them got more restaurants to choose and they set up ice cream shops and small ones around the town. It was nice to see people coming out, hanging out and having a good time. Less graffiti here compare to other towns... More
