Sibiu - View from the Stairs

From here, you can enjoy a view over the rooftops of the Lower Townfeaturing the trademark ‘peeping eyes’. 

The Lower Town is definitely one of the most beautiful and picturesque parts of the Sibiu. 
The architecture here is completely unique. 
Houses are painted in brash bright colours and sagging brown roofs have windows that look like dropping eyelids. 
You can really get a sense here of the previous ‘peasant culture’ that existed in Transylvania in previous years – 
something that is very different to the wealth of the Germanic Upper Town.
