Square high Sibiu, in the center, You can see Brukenthal Palace. In his right hand, Blue house. Left the palace are the current headquarters of the Town (former headquarters of Banca Agricola, before '89 and still a good long while after). In Roman Catholic Right, built in sec. the VIII-lea.

Across the Great Square, side with the Roman Catholic Church and in the face of Brukenthal Palace, the statue of George Lazar, work of sculptor Radu Aftenie. And this statue is a whole story… But better to give voice to even the creator of this work: “Gheorghe Lazar was not a oarecine, whose statue and placed it in a corner. And this monument is dear to me because I chipped one (old statue, which will be discussed at once), and because no help is on the other replica Lazar, from Avrig, carved my mentor, Cornel Medrea.

rebuilt, as I initially thought, I would sit very well in front of the former restaurant Danube, to take place , possibly statue of Baron Samuel von Brukenthal. I would not want to Sibiu, Lazar's statue was a reason for discord, especially because they are linked to the city through the many emotional threads.” They said the sculptor Radu Aftenie in an interview with the newspaper Tribuna.
