In 2007 Sibiu was the European Capital of Culture and the city is the place of birth of, among others, the current Romanian President Klaus Johannis and the former German Interior Minister Otto Schily. 17,000 students study at the 9 faculties of Lucian-Blaga-University and several study programmes are offered in German.
