Bulevardul Nicolae Bălcescu0
Why locals love it
Nicolae Bălcescu is the main pedestrian street in the historic core of Sibiu and the most popular place for downtown shopping. It is flanked by restaurants, cafes, shops, banks, and agencies while in the summer is almost suffocated by pavement terraces. During festivals is a place full of happening as many shows take place directly in the street.
Why you should visit it
It's actually impossible to miss Nicolae Bălcescu street as most of the restaurants and cafes are located here. You will also find numberless souvenir shops with traditional Romanian products, major brands (such as Zara), banks, ATMs, and local offices of the mobile companies (just in case you need to buy a local sim card: Digi, Orange, Vodafone).
Although it might be a tempting place to play your guitar / violin / whatsoever, the tourist police is very active!
