Day 30-32: Sibiu, Romania (part I)

Sibiu is situated in central Romania and has a population of 154,000. It is one of the cities of Transilvania where you can still feel a bit of the former multiethnic atmosphere of this region, many shop- and restaurant signs are still written in German, although most of the German speaking minority has left the country in the last decades.
Sibiu, which is a popular tourist destination for its fascinating labyrinthic old town, was the European cultural capital in 2007.

Pictures I took from the train between Alba Iulia and Sibiu:

I thank you on behalf of all Romanians for your presentation!

As you said, much is needed to be done and i cannot disagree on such topic. One thing I need to add: Romania did not have its say throughout the history of Man, so we are still a young culture, a young country (thus sometimes spoiled), but we are fast learners and we are still recovering from the communist regime that ravaged us for almost half a century.

When we'll get in full shape, well, that will be the moment when the World will get the best of us.

Until then you'll have to take pics of our commieblocks, stray dogs and partly rehabilitated historical centers.

Awaiting more of your trip!

In a way yes, there were some differences though both in architecture and urbanism, most socrealist buildings (in Poland at least) were influenced by modernism to some extent which for me makes it much easier to accept than modern or XIX century historicism.

Donīt you think itīs ridiculous that a state which called itself "socialist" tried to imitate the style of 17th century exploiters in a way 19th century bourgeoisie would have done in a smaller scale?
It's not so much about the style but rather the exploitation that was criticized so if they built palaces for the people I don't see a ideological problem here, not that I defend communism. Anyway most socrealist buildings were less decorative than Pkin or MDM district former central committee building for example: http://naszastolica.blox.pl/2009/06/...OM-PARTII.html

My kind of showcase! Love your pics man, keep up! Can't wait for your pics from Turkey!

Also, I don't understand why Romanian forumers seem to be quite offended. I think Romania looks quite authentic and more historic than most European nations since they didn't renovate their historic buildings in a way as if they were built a few years ago.

i have been fallowing you're thread from the beginning and it is great man. Please don't mind my fellow nationalists who get pissed off every time somebody says something bad about Romania , because basicly you are right , it is a shitty country , and with few exceptions in the big and tourist cities does feel like a third world (for the rural part no comment) , but you have to admit it's a lot more interesting than our western neighbours , there's always something different and interesting to see and experience and i think that's why a lot of foreigners come ....well that and the cheap great booze ,food and a lot of beautiful women. Keep posting uncensored , because you're pics show exactly what a train traveler would see (good and bad) starting with the view from the train station and around the cities. As others said before , it's not the photographers fault that the cityscape it's ugly sometimes.
