A Winter Nights Journey In Sibiu

Up the stairs with many cobble stone steps. One by one, soon we’ll be there.

Through an alley, or two, maybe your journey will take three.

Ahead are more steps to walk up and down upon.

Just around the corner there are small huts. What are these for? Oh, pretty lights in the sky too :), YAY!

Just one more turn.



And, FUN!!! Hope your journey around Sibiu Romania is just as magical if not more so. We passed by so many bars, cafe’s, restaurants, parks, monuments, statues, art pieces, kitties, puppies, birds, families, friends, and strollers which you will all see, just come visit us if you please :).

Flakes of Snow #sibiu


Why does it flake, with snows of cheer, in a place out of all places. Here of all places, the snow that sticks, to each flake, a snowflake. On the roof, on the cobblestone, on the window chandeliers, over the clothes warming the people walking. . . some seeking cover under the canopies in front of the cafe’s. Even the cats play in the snow in Sibiu Romania. Even though cats hate rain. Cats of the snow.

  • Snow.

 It must be winter time. In the day, in the night, outside, and also with a friend inside.

  Store fronts sweeping the snow outside their entrance. Homeowners sweeping the snow outside their door entrance. Strollers sweeping the streets with their feet outside all the entrances.

 A perfect way to skate around the ice rink, with the lines not as big in the mornings, come night time, a queue time. In the center of the city, the large plaza with plenty of shops, snacks, drinks, eats, and wears. Let your friends stay in line while you buy and shop without a large fine.

*The snow still falls.*

Walk into a book store with a hidden downstairs cafe, but make sure to dust your feet. With the snow outside the floor, because the inside maybe slippery and wet. Many book stores to choose from, with a variety of treats for the eyes and mouth and the ears. Music playing, people chatting, drinking, eating, throwing snowballs.

“Throw that snowball at me and I’ll make sure to *******” two friends laughed at each other. Then the snowballs came hurling. Poof then everyone burst out giggling.

Colors of Sibiu – Buildings with a Spectrum

A colorful pastel minimalism approach, overlaying the magnificent architecture of Sibiu Romania, for any colorist, visitor, guest, traveler, and tourist to feast their eyes upon.

Sometimes one falls in love with a view for so long 

This unique mixture of historic European architecture and modern contemporary art color influences is in a league of it’s own. The soft pastel spectrum of colors are a treat for anyone strolling down the alleys, streets, and main centers of lovely Sibiu. The walls, windows, doors, frames, and  all four corners each have their own unique combination of color formations. Witness the sights of sea green,  sunflower yellow, peach peach, sunrise blue, or a saturated violet lavender mixed with a hint of orchid.

Start at one interaction, make a 360 degree turn (left or right, turning is fun either way). Take lots of pictures (this is obvious, or save the memory for yourself). Then move to the other side, however, some could get stuck at one corner for a few seconds.

Just like the eye above the house’s (yes it’s a thing, just research the eye’s of Sibiu), the fine cuisine at all the markets and restaurants, and the ancestral built cityscape, the colors have a permanent stay here for all to enjoy.

And don’t forget to check every nook and cranny because sometimes one decimeter can have an astounding effect. So keep those eyes wide open, oh yeah, also look up and down, left and right, and all around.

We hope to see you here so you can experience one of the most visually satisfying locations on your travels.

And of course, our staff at CityStay Hostel would be more than happy to arrange a special walking tour to the best viewpoints.
