Medieval City of Sibiu – 2 days
Instantly charming with a maze of cobbled streets and baroque squares undulating downhill, Romania’s cultural gem has a magic all of its own. Franz List and Johan Strauss were drawn here in the 19th century, and in 2007 the city was voted European Capital of Culture. In fact, the country’s first hospital, school, library, and pharmacy were all established here, so there must be a spirit of enterprise in the air. (Lonely Planet).
