Safety:Very safe

Sibiu is generally a safe destination for solo female travelers. The city is known for its safety and walkability. Like any city, there are some areas that are better to avoid late at night, but common sense and standard precautions are typically enough to keep you safe. The locals are friendly and usually willing to help should you encounter any difficulty.


Sibiu is moderately easy to navigate as a solo female traveler. Its size allows for most attractions to be conveniently reachable by foot. Local public transportation is reliable and covers a majority of the city. English is commonly spoken among the younger population and translating apps tend to do a good job translating Romanian. However, signage is predominantly in Romanian and some neighborhoods can be a bit confusing to navigate.
