After recovering from my rough week in the Apuseni mountains, I finally got my energy back up and moved on to Sibiu. The city is known as one of the gems Romania’s Saxon heritage, and after visiting I definitely understood why. The old town is extremely well preserved and the architecture is really fascinating. I had a great time walking around!
I also saw a great, politically-charged wall of street art that was half in Romanian and half in English. Although it was the briefest of introductions, I definitely got a sense of some of the Romanian sentiment around current political realities in Europe.
