Lots of steps

Gets your heart pumping as you climb to the top. Amazing view once you get there. Very busy with school students, not a lot of room on the steps.

Sibiu main's and tallest tower. I recommend to go all the way to the top. It's an amazing view. Can't open the windows to take photos, though.

Really, really beautiful. The entire town can be seen from up there. It's less than 1 euro to visit it. Loved it!

Built in the XIII Century, the tower is the crossing passage that links Sibiu's Big Square and Small Square. A climb to the top of the tower is well worth it. One of the most beautiful 360° views of the city. Not to forget the centuries old clock, still functional nowadays. Lots of picture opportunities.

If you are into taking photos or just want to see a great panorama of Sibiu, you must climb the 400 stairs of the tower. You won't regret it!
