Considering these were taken from a moving bus, I’m quite pleased with these pictures. As you can see, Romania has some absolutely beautiful countryside as well as some lovely cities and towns. Well worth a visit (no they’re not paying me to write this, sadly! But it’s true!).

Heading south

Photos today and tomorrow were taken from the bus as I headed south out of Sibiu and on towards Bucharest ready to go home. Sibiu nestles in the Carpathian mountains, so the first part of the journey is really scenic. I was lucky that, by chance, I met someone I knew who was also going to Bucharest, so she helped me get through the crowds onto the bus in the first place (it was a scrum, but as we were going the whole way rather than just part-way they let us onto the last 2 seats!) and provided some good company for a long journey.

This is the view turning about 45 degrees left from yesterday’s photo, also from the door of my room. I love the rambling plants and ramshackle roofs (rooves?).

My final view from Turnul Sfaturilor is looking back at the Evangelical Cathedral. And some rather menacing clouds!

I hope you enjoyed these views of Sibiu – from tomorrow I’m going to show you somewhere I’ve not shown yet, but which is one of Sibiu’s main attractions.

This is my penultimate photo from the top of the Counsellors’ Tower – this one shows a workman looking a bit precarious to me – I don’t think I’d want to be working up there!

This is looking towards the Ursuline Church which can be clearly seen, and to the left of the church the long thin orange-ish building is the train station (and the yellow building to the left of that is the bus station).

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