Walk of Fame
Over the years, Sibiu was the witness and beneficiary of the extraordinary contribution brought by numerous cultural and artistic personalities who helped develop the city as we know it today. Each of these personalities has a distinctive and astonishing story that connects him/her to Sibiu’s destiny and remains woven into the intimate fibre of the community.
Sibiu was a medieval citadel which couldn’t be conquered. There is a pedestrian alley between the first and the second guard walls that connects the first theatre ever built on the Romanian territory in 1788 with the „Barracks 90”, where the future theatre will be built. This Walk of Fame was born between the past and the future, adding each year new significant names of the world of theatre, dance and art shows.
The Walk of Fame, opened in the summer of 2013 by the Municipality with the occasion of the 20th anniversary edition of the International Theatre Festival of Sibiu, is thought as a permanent location of celebration and recognition of these contributions, as well as a tribute to the accomplishments in the cultural and artistic field of Sibiu or related to it. Although inspired by the famous Walk of Fame from Hollywood, the Walk of Fame from Sibiu is thought as a cultural event, which gives it its own personality, as well as a tourist attraction conferring uniqueness to the site.
