The city of Sibiu grew to be the most powerful of the Transylvania Saxons cities. During the peak of Saxon influence, Sibiu had some 19 guilds, each representing a different craft within the sturdy city walls protected by 39 towers and bastions. Under the Habsburgs, Sibiu served as the seat of the Austrian governors of Transylvania. The oldest and finest art gallery in Romania, Brukenthal Museum, was founded here in 1817, three years before the Louvre in Paris. Sibiu is an attractive town with colorful houses, narrow passageways, tiny squares and friendly people.
