SIBIU, FORMER EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE

The Ninth Edition of the RoEduNet Conference will be hosted in Sibiu, about 300 km N-W from the Romanian capital Bucharest.

Sibiu was the European Capital of Culture in 2007.

The Citadel of Sibiu was for centuries one of the largest and best fortified in Europe. Sibiu is beautiful; indeed a delight for the eyes. Eerie eaves shaped like eyes peer down from the buildings that line the narrow, medieval streets. At the center of it all stands the proud fortress-church, built by the original German settlers in Gothic sturdiness.

 

History surrounds Sibiu like a defensive wall. The outlines of Sibiu's many churches have dominated her sky line since early times. Sibiu is dotted with many areas of parkland, intimate gardens and attractive tree-lined boulevards. Sibiu's pulling power is stronger in spring, the season of chestnuts in blossom, and the start of various festivals. Sibiu, and Sibiu area, contains the largest concentration of tourist attractions in Romania.

INTERNET ACCESS

During the Conference, WLAN access will be available through the ULBS Public Hotspots or via EDUROAM, so bring your laptops with you! An Internet Access point with several computers will also be available.
