Miercurea Sibiului (German: Reußmarkt; Hungarian: Szerdahely) is a town in the west of Sibiu County, in southern Transylvania, central Romania, 34 km to the west of the county capital Sibiu.

Administration

Miercurea Sibiului was declared a town in 2004 and it is one of the smallest and least urbanised ones in the country.

The town administers two villages:

  • The village of Apoldu de Sus (Großpold; Nagyapold), 5 km away
  • The village of Dobârca (Dobring; Doborka), 8 km away.

Also, 5 km away there is a small spa town.

At the 2011 census, 83.1% of inhabitants were Romanians, 14.7% Roma and 1.9% Germans.

Geography

The town lies on the contact area between the Transylvanian Plateau and the Cindrel Mountains, a massif in the Parâng Mountains group in the Southern Carpathians, on a small depression formed by the Seca? River.

The town is situated on a main Romanian road link: the DN1 road between Sibiu and Sebe?, E68/E81 European routes.

History

Since the 12th or 13th century it was inhabited by Transylvanian Saxons and from 1355 it became one of the original seven seats of Saxondom from the Sibiu area.

The city is the place of birth of Ilie M?celaru (1822-1891), a lawyer who participated in the 1848 revolution and a founding member of the Romanian National Party that was formed in Miercurea Sibiului on 17 March 1869. Other natives include:
