If you are a thrill seeker with a zest for culture and history, and you want to impress your friends with a photo taken from a 55-m high tower? If so, you should definitely visit the Sibiu Evangelical Cathedral, an important historical monument, as part of the one-day tour of Sibiu, the citadel town.
To reach this point of the tower, which measures 74 meters in total, you have to climb up 192 steps which lead up to the 4 smaller towers. From here, you have a great view of Sibiu and the opportunity for some truly memorable photos.
The tower of the Sibiu Evangelical Cathedral is the second oldest clock tower in Romania. The current one dates back to 1881, having served for centuries as the town’s fire lookout tower.
Built in the 14th century on the site of an even older 12th century church, the Evangelical Cathedral of Sibiu is one of the most beautiful examples of gothic architecture in Transylvania. It is also the third largest house of worship in Romania, measuring 74 meters in length and 22 meters in width.
In addition, in the narthex of the cathedral, a space separate from the main body of the church, there is a one-of-a-kind gallery containing 67 ledger stones. The oldest ones belong to Georg Hecht (1496), Nicolau Proll (1499), and Mihnea Voda the Bad (1510), a Romanian ruler who was killed on the church’s very steps.
In conclusion, whether you opt for a one-day tour of Sibiu or a basic two-hour tour, make sure you visit the Evangelical Cathedral, just one of the reasons why Sibiu was designated as the European Capital of Culture in 2007. We promise you it will be worth it.
We have not even mentioned the best restaurants in Sibiu where you can treat yourself to delicious game and traditional Romanian dishes, and savor famous Romanian liqueurs.
