Food Scene

Cafe Wien is the place in Sibiu for breathtaking views over the rooftops of the old town and beautiful sunsets. The food is ok but the Strudel is perfect! They also serve breakfast. You have 3 choices of places to sit... inside (in winter or when it rains, it is very nice), outside on the right side (good for relaxing in the sun and having a breathtaking view of the lower old town) or on the left side, where you can sit at the shade of a tree and still enjoy a very nice view.

A place you have to see! It was built in the style of a Byzantine basilica, inspired by Hagia Sophia, with the main spires influenced by Transylvanian church architecture and Baroque elements. Work, coordinated by city architect Iosif Schussnig, began in 1902 and was finished in 1904, when the copper roof was done. The plan, by Virgil Nagy and Iosif Kamner of Budapest, was chosen from among designs submitted by 31 mainly Austrian and Hungarian architects. On 13 December 1904, the four bells were blessed and placed in the two main spires (during World War I, the Austro-Hungarian Army melted the three bells in the western spire for use as cannons; these were not replaced until 1926). The iconostasis and kliros were then manufactured at Constantin Babic's firm in Bucharest; electric lighting was also installed. The iconostasis (of gilt carved wood) and dome (showing Christ Pantocrator flanked by angels) were painted by Octavian Smigelschi, from the nearby village of Ludoș.
