  3. 3. placed Sibiu no.8 among the 10 “Europe's Most Idyllic Places To Live” “ In the heart of Transylvania lies Sibiu, an important but little known city of 160,000. Outside Romania, Transylvania is best known as the sinister setting of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula. Yet within Romania, the region is known for the outstanding beauty of its Carpathian mountain landscape and its rich and significant history. In 2007, Sibiu, the city with cobbled streets and pastel colored buildings, was the European capital of culture.”
  4. 4. The city of Sibiu was first mentioned in documents in 1191 and is one of the most important cities in Transylvania. Romanians, Germans(former Saxons) and Hungarians have been leaving here for more than eight hundred years. In German the city is called Hermannstadt,in Romanian is called Sibiu,derived from the Latin name of the first settlement Cibinium and Nagyszeben in Hungarian. The first Saxons settlers came from Moselle river region and Luxemberg and were invited to Transylvania by Hungarian kings to defend the border territories against Turk and Tatar attacks. In exchange for their help in defending the borders they were offered land and privileges. The next waves of settlers came from Rhineland, Southern Low Countries, Thuringia, Bavaria and even France.
  5. 5. The Saxons created “the land of the 7 fortresses “Siebenbürgen” or “Transylvania”, seven fortified cities, as well as numerous villages in which fortified churches were raised to serve as a shelter in the event of an attack. These fortified churches built by the village communities, an architectural formula which is considered unique in whole Europe. Charles, Prince of Wales has a long standing interest in Romania and the fortress churches from Transylvania and has visited the country regularly since his first visit in 1998.He became something of a spokesman for Transylvania and started buying properties in these villages, restoring them and turning them into guest houses. Prince Charles claims distant kinship with Vlad the Impaler,the 15th century Wallachian ruler on whom the Irish novelist Bram Stoker based his Dracula.
