Why locals love it

Brukenthal Museum is the first museum opened in Romania in the late 18th century. Located on one side of the Piața Mare Square (the main square in town), it is an imposing, monumental building that attracts your attention with its beautiful Baroque architecture. It features a peaceful courtyard, a medieval library, and art galleries.

Why you should visit it

You cannot miss this medieval palace simply because it's the most famous one in Sibiu and in Romania. The museum was set up in the former residence of Samuel von Brukenthal (the governor of Transylvania) at his express request. The current Brukenthal Palace houses the European Art Gallery in the Baroque rooms of the upper floors.
