Sibiu is the most important city in the county of Sibiu. It is situated in the longitude of 24° 29' East (in line with Lyon) and in the latitude of 45° 48? North (in line with Athena), near the geographical center of Romania.
Set in the Cibin Depression, the city is near to Fagaras Mountains (about. 20 km), Cibin Mountains (12 km), and Lotrului Mountains (about 15km), which border the depression in the southwestern part. The north and east boundaries of Sibiu territory are settled by Târnavelor Plateau which descends to the Cibin Valley through Gusteritei Hill.
Cibin river and some roads of national and international interest run through Sibiu which is also an important city for the railway transportation, being the meeting point of routes from east-west and north-south. Area: 121 square km

THE EVANGELIC CHURCH
This impressive cathedral was built in 1520 on the place of an old Romanic basilica from the 12th century.
With five pointed towers it is one of the most impressive buildings in Sibiu, the tower is nearly 74 m high, the tallest building in Transylvania.
In front of the cathedral the statue of Georg Daniel Teutsch, Bishop of Sibiu, erected in 1899.

At the end of the 18th century the governor of Transylvania Samuel von Brukenthal had gathered an impressive library and rich art collections, mentioned since 1773 in the Almanach von Wien. The collections were opened to the public in 1817 and became later the core of Brukenthal Museum.

The hiding place is very exposed and it might be difficult to retrieve the box during day time. Please make sure that you are not watched.
Regards DBotond
