It's a well known meeting point; they call it "La Turn". It is situated between Piata Mica and Piata Mare, the two squares. Beside the view you could eat at the restaurant with the same name and listen piano music.

The tower only cost 2 lei to climb and housed an art exhibition while we were there. From the top you can see all around the city, it really is beautiful.

It seems like a small tower and a bit difficult to get to the top, but once you get there you'll see a unique view over the city. And the entrace fee is a bargain, only 2 lei.
