Spiral / steep staircase

It is spiral / steep staircase, leading to the top of the tower for a lovely view of the Sibiu city. The price is low, however the climb is tiring, but its worth it.

That's about it. Also, there's a grotesque modern expo by Marius Simion until the end of September if you're interested in modern art.

Great views of the city for a very small price. Very hot in the summer, so best to go in the morning or evening.

At only 2 lei (0.4 euro) you get to see Sibiu from one of the tallest towers. The views are exceptional, and there also is a photo gallery on most of the floors. 5/5

A hard climb in sometimes very narrow and crowded spiral staircases but the view on the city and the Carpathian Mountains from the top is well worth the effort.

The view over the city old and new city is breathtaking. For a extremely low entrance fee, you can see over the whole city.

The tower is very old. The entrace fee is cheap-only 2 ron. The climbing could be a little difficult, but there are photos exhibitions between floors, so it can take a break. Also the top view worths the climbing.
