Sibiu - European Capital of Culture
Sibiu is the city where I live. It is located in the center of Romania (Europe) near the mountains. The city was built around the year 1100 by the Saxons. You can see on the buildings the marks of the medieval times because Sibiu was a fortress and was the most powerful manufactory center in Transylvania. Now the city has around 300.000 peoples who live in it and another 200.000 who come for work.
This year Sibiu was choose the European Capital of Culture because it is a beautiful city and a great place to visit. All the year the city was full of tourists from all Europe who came here to see this beautiful city surrounded by superb landscapes and mountains. The Mayor of Sibiu is a German named Klaus Johannis whose grandfathers were born in Sibiu. He did a lot of great things in the city this year and this is the most important that he attracted so much tourists in here.
Sibiu hosted a lot of music bands and singers who are breaking all the tops in the world. Beside this a lot of main Europe events took place in here, like MTV DJ Awards and the International Theatre Festival.
