Sibiu - Photo by Ovidiu Sopa
As Sibiu became a prosperous town, Piata Mare and its satelite streets were taken over by the elite.  The attractive street Avram Iancu contains some of the grandest Saxon houses, many of them with carriage entrances leading to inner courtyards. At Str. Avram Iancu 21 was the home of composer Gheorge Dima (1847-1925) who wrote choral music inspired by Romanian folklore.
