Dandelion fountain

This fountain, on a roundabout on the way out of town, always reminded me of dandelions. You can see the more modern (ie socialist realist) concrete apartment blocks behind it – although central Sibiu is very pretty (as I hope this blog has amply demonstrated) plenty of people live in the socialist-era blocks as well. This is only a short walk from the city centre.

I’ve forgotten the name of the roads this fountain is on – we tidied up recently and I’ve mislaid my map! Will update later if I ever find it again!

    I genuinely think this place to be one of those hidden gems that is overlooked. It’s just incredibly sweet that the dandelion fountain is so apt.

    The streets are Mihai Viteazu (visible in the background) and Calea Dumbravii.
    To be honest, I don’t notice it anymore, but that’s exactly why someone else’s fresh perspective can be so valuable. Thanks!
