The basics

Towering over Piata Albert Huet, Sibiu Cathedral is a frequented stop on city tours. Spot the statue of bishop Georg Daniel Teutsch, then head inside to see historic artifacts such as the 15th-century bronze font or rumored tomb of Vlad the Impaler’s son. Information in English is usually limited, so take advantage of guided packages to learn more. Don’t miss the cathedral’s pièce de résistance, its 240-foot (73-meter) tower, which offers picture-perfect panoramas of the city.

When to get there

Though many flock to Gothic Sibiu during the darker months of fall and winter, the Lutheran Cathedral is especially charming during summer, when extended opening hours allow you to soak up end-of-the-day views from the tower’s summit and weekly organ concerts create a powerful atmosphere.
