Romania’s Sibiu Becomes Europe’s Next Capital of Culture


In 2007, there will be two cultural capitals: Luxembourg and Sibiu in Romania. Sibiu’s old town is currently being renovated to bring it back to its former glory.
Sibiu, which is called Hermannstadt in German, was founded by Transylvanian Saxons in the late twelfth century and rapidly became a significant trade center.

Sibiu’s inhabitants hope that Transylvania and Romania as a whole will be given a boost thanks to its role as Europe’s cultural capital of 2007.
