Eating well is an important way to live well and hotels or guesthouses with spa programs include delicious, healthy meals and local food. They offer a wide range of  indoor training and outdoor sports activities for guests who want to get even more out of their stay. Yoga, mindful walks, forest-bathing, snowshoeing, hiking and spa are the ideal combination to get the zen feeling.

Some guest-houses are reserved for grown-ups who appreciate peace and quiet. However, most places welcome children and even have special, fun activities for them. Make sure to check in advance.

Baia Populara Spa Centre

Built in the early 1900s, the construction stylistically combines baroque shapes with late 19th - early 20th century Jugendstil elements and is the city’s most representative building for that architectural style. In terms of architectonic structure, Baia Populară Sibiu is an almost faithful copy of the Müller Bath in Munich, as it is the work of the same architect. We’re proud to say that, at that time, no other Austrian-Hungarian city of the size of Sibiu possessed such an institution.
