Destination Details

Sibiu, Romania

We invite you to admire one of Sibiu`s emblems: the Evangelical Cathedral 

Take a look at  one of the most impressive buildings in Sibiu, raised in the 14th century on the location of an old Roman church dating from the 12th century, verry beautiful constructed and decaratef in the gothic style. It is dominated by the seven level tower with the four towers on the corners, a mark showing that the city had the right of condemnation. With a height of 73.34 meters, the tower is the tallest in Transylvania.

The cathedral’s tower is situated at the balcony on the southern wing and includes a Baroque style organ made by a Slovak craftsman in 1671 which replaced the first organ brought in Sibiu in 1585. The new organ was built by the Wilhelm Sauer Company (Frankfurt/Oder) and installed in this church in Sibiu in 1915. At the present there exist two other organs made by this company (in Berlin – Tempelhof and in Talin - Dom). In 1997 the organ undergoes complex renovation works, nowadays being the largest in the South-Eastern Europe.

A lot of legends were borned here, in the historical heart of the church wich gathers around it all the medieval treasures of the city Sibiu.
