About the tour

Also known as Hermanstadt in German - which is still one of the spoken languages for centuries here, Sibiu is one of the seven walled citadels of Siebenburgen (Transylvania in German) built by the German Saxons in the 12th century and quickly became an important trade center which led also for the city to become the capital of Transylvania between 1692 - 1791. Numerous traders, craftsmen and culinary specialties producers settled in the city and helped it flourish over time, developing a multi-national and mixed cultural background in the region. Their legacy can still be seen today and during our night tour we shall have the opportunity to discover one of the most beautiful but very well preserved Old Towns of Transylvania.


Meet your local guide

Mihai

Since Mihai started guiding back in 2016 he knew this was for him. And he feels so lucky that he found this vocation within himself. Mihai has always been very much attracted by all the WW1 & WW2 documentaries on History Channel and still is nowadays. Having the opportunity to share the history, the still living traditions and the beauty of his country to travellers from all over the world is like a dream come true. Mihai has a bachelors degree in engineering, while his hobbies are history, the trips in the nature, playing sports and spending time with his family

Mihai has been guiding since Mar 2016
