I’m not going to apologise that there are so many pictures of this sky. I couldn’t resist!

Here’s Piata Mica emerging from the Liars’ Bridge. That sky was just amazing.

Scaffolding

This is the far end of Piata Mica, the tower is the Turnul Sfaturilor (Counsellors’ Tower). This end of the square still was in need of a bit more restoration, as you can see from the scaffolding in the foreground.

Huddle

Here are the cafe chairs close-up. I just liked the patterns of the wicker, the contrast with the ornate metal chairs behind, and the angles of the chairs.

These chairs are on the terrace in Piata Mica, I think outside La Piazzetta.

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.

As this was my final week (for the time being) in Sibiu, I made sure I went back to my favourite restaurant, La Piazzetta on Piata Mica.

Jellyfish

I’ve shown this installation a few times before – this is in Piata Mica, it was installed not too long after I moved to Sibiu and was still there when I left a couple of months later at the end of July (I’m trying to remember now if it was still there when I returned to Sibiu in October 2007, I don’t think it was but am happy to be corrected). I always called it “the egg”, but apparently the locals all referred to it as the jellyfish. I really like this photo.

Another view over Piata Mica and Piata Huet (the Evangelical Cathedral just edges in at the right of the first photo).

This view from the tower is looking down at Piata Mica. Hopefully you can see Podul Minciunilor (the “Liars’ Bridge”), plus what we called “the egg” (but which a previous commenter here said the locals called “the jellyfish”).
