Sibiu, also known as Hermannstadt, with its medieval look, the beautiful surroundings and its local traditions, is one of the most important, beautiful and interesting cities in Transylvania for tourists. In 2007 Sibiu was awarded the title of European Capital of Culture.

Sibiu – Liar’s Bridge

Her name is Jackie and she is “an English PhD student at Glasgow University” as she introduces herself. But between May-July 2007 she lived in Sibiu, Romania and she fell in love with this city.

During her stay in Sibiu, she took her camera with her and managed to capture its “soul” in an infinit number of photos. Nearly three years ago, she started a photoblog about it,
Sibiu Daily Photo, as part of City Daily Photo.

I recommend you Jackie’s blog – “a bit of a trip down memory lane” for her. And an opportunity for you to find out about Sibiu and, why not, to note down your future travel destination.

And don’t forget to check also Jackie’s photoblog about her hometown, Glasgow Daily Photo.
