Sibiu and Romania at a Glance
Romania is a country located at the crossroads of Central and South-eastern Europe, on the Lower Danube, to the north of the Balkan Peninsula, within and outside the Carpathian arch, bordering on the Black Sea. Romania shares a border with Hungary and Serbia to the west, Ukraine and Moldova to the northeast and east, and Bulgaria to the south.
With its mountains, hilly territories, lake complexes, Danube Delta and sea shore, Romania is a beautiful geographically diversified place worth visiting.

Known in German under the name Hermannstadt, Sibiu has always been the most important center of the German minority in Transylvania. Nowadays, Sibiu has the most numerous German community in Romania but also a fairly important Hungarian community. Still, Sibiu is a city with a predominant Romanian population (95% of the population is of Romanian origin) which knew how to preserve and mingle the 3 cultures to which the culture of other existing minorities was added.

Population
147,245

Climate
Romania has a climate that is transitional between temperate and continental, with four distinct seasons. 

Close by:
The fortified citadels and churches from Transylvania: the Citadel of Brasov, Brasovului, Prejmer, Rupea, Saschiz, Biertan, Slimnic, Calnic, Corvins’ Castle and Sighisoara, are just a few of the historical sights worth seeing in Transylvania
The Danube Delta: is the most interesting place in Romania, unique in the world and part of UNESCO World Heritege. With over 300 species of birds, 45 kinds of fish and an incredible vegetation, the Danube Delta is indelible.
The Black Sea: is the main touristic area of Romania and it stretches out for 244km/153 miles with soft sand and safe, gently sloping beaches.

Other students’ testimonials about their experience in Sibiu
Rarely do we get a chance to see both sides of the medal. I had the great fortune and privilege to live and experience just that. In Sibiu I learned a lot, but I also had fun. This city that resists time with its walls and streets who are there for centuries will stay in the best memories. The people I met and with whom I keep in touch will alleviate the grief of my departure from Sibiu. As the tower from the picture all my successes here and the experience will stand firmly and proudly in my memory for life. Maybe it was short, but it was not forgetful. If I could I would returned time back again and again. I am convinced, moreover, I already planning to be back soon in Sibiu as a tourist, and perhaps something more.
