While vis­it­ing the charm­ing me­dieval city of Sibiu in Tran­syl­va­nia, Ro­ma­nia, you’d be for­given for feel­ing you were be­ing watched. Sibiu is fa­mous for its al­mond-shaped win­dows – the ‘city’s eyes’ or ochi­uri ale ora­su­lui. His­tory books show the city has been in­hab­ited since 300 BC and its eerie eye­balls are a lo­cal at­trac­tion. The roofs that ap­pear to ‘watch you’ as you stroll past keep a keen eye on the 154,000 lo­cals and vis­i­tors alike.
