Here’s a couple more of the passageway, taken from halfway through it – the first one is looking towards Str. Mitropoliei, and the second is looking towards Str. Xenopol.

Over the road from the Orthodox Cathedral is the Orthodox Seminary. Sibiu is one of the main centres of Orthodox theological training in Romania. Normal hoi-polloi like me aren’t allowed in as far as I know, but there is an entrance hall covered in frescoes where we were allowed to go. I’ll show some more frescoes over the next few days.

This is a different view of the Orthodox Cathedral on Str. Mitropoliei. I quite like it with this fence in the foreground.

Not the most riveting photo today, but I wanted to give a plug to the wonderful Silence Internet Cafe on Str. Mitropoliei, which was my second home – I spent time here pretty much every day keeping in touch with loved ones back home and keeping connected although I was so far away. It was a bit surreal getting regular emails from friends in Glasgow saying “It’s raining AGAIN” while I was sweltering in 40+ degree heat!

Anyway, hooray for Silence Internet Cafe, which played such a major role in maintaining my sanity!

In other news, m_m from Nowy Sacz Daily Photo very kindly awarded me a Kreativ Blogger award.


I’m meant to award it to 7 other bloggers, but I visit so many other fantastic blogs it’s quite impossible to narrow it down to 7. I would though encourage you to visit m_m’s blog, there are some really fantastic pictures there 🙂

Carved door

Intricately carved wooden doors and gates are really common in Transylvania, especially in Hungarian villages, but you also see them in the cities too. These doors are the entrance to the main post office (closed because this was taken on a Sunday evening!) on Str. Mitropoliei, on the same side of the road as yesterday’s flags.

Church and state

This is in Str. Mitropoliei. I liked the juxtaposition of the flags on one side of the road (EU and Romanian flags) and the lovely church spire on the other side. The church is Hungarian, a reformed church. A bit further down the road is the Orthodox Cathedral, which I’ve shown before and which will feature again later in the week.

Night Statues

I’ve shown this doorway on Str. Mitropoliei before, but as I walked past it it was usually difficult to resist the temptation to take another picture, especially at night when the statues are lit up. This was on my way home from the festivities in Piata Mare.
