Formerly the centre of the Transylvanian Saxons, the old city was ranked as “Europe’s 8th most idyllic place to live” by Forbes. You may visit the Grand Square, the largest square of the city, and has been the center of the city since the 16th century. 142 m long and 93 m wide, it is one of the largest ones in Transylvania.
