Old Folks’ Home

For this final week in Sibiu I was staying in a little hotel (Podul Minciunilor) in Str. Azilului. This is the view from my door. The orange building over the road is the “Azilul” (Old Folks’ Home) that has given its name to the street – it goes along pretty much the entire length of the street. The building was being renovated (and the street was being dug up) so nobody was living there while I was there, I don’t know if it’s being used now, either for its original purpose or any other.

This is the last bit of art I’ll show from the Primaria. I’ve no idea what it’s all about.

Chandelier

I took this in the Primaria looking up. I think this was a chandelier, although I can’t see the bulbs in the photo so it might have been a hanging sculpture. Whatever, I thought it was pretty bonkers.

I popped into the Primaria (Town Hall) on Piata Mare to see if there was an exhibition on. There was some modern art there, so I took a few pictures.

The stage might have gone, but the fountain was still doing its thing.

Piata Mare without the stage

I was surprised when I came back after a couple of months away, and with 3 months to go before the end of the Capital of Culture year, that the stage in Piata Mare had been dismantled and disappeared. It made the square seem even bigger.

This is from Sibiu’s youth hostel, which is owned and run by the Evangelical Cathedral. It’s just opposite the Cathedral in Piata Huet.

Astra film festival

Every year in Sibiu, not just during the Capital of Culture year while I was there, they hold a film festival in October. It’s a really famous festival – the link to the festival website here gives a good idea of the kind of stuff it shows. This was taken in Piata Mica – the Astra cinema is very near here in Piata Huet.
