On the way up, there are plentiful breaks with, at the time I was ascending, interesting art at various levels. Well worth the trip, with great views over this lovely town.

It is placed in the old town of Sibiu. Together with the rest of the main attraction from old town create the most beautiful city from Romania. You should visit all of them in order to understand how beautiful are together.

If you are in the big square, it takes less than $1 to climb it and only few minutes. You can stop at every level so you don't need to be worried. Only the first few steps are narrow so way not try a bird's eye view?

Nice to see tower in the middle of the town, the whole street it's on has a nice feel to it, being closed for cars really helps.

Well it was indeed as advertised... For 2 lei the view from the top is worth it and it is enclosed at the top which is better if you have a fear of heights. There is quite an interesting photo exhibition in there too

Sibiu has a magical charm to it and you can just feel being engulfed in history when you walk around. However, you can't appreciate the immense beauty of the place until you've had the overview. This tower is not easy to climb, especially for those who are really tall and big, but once you get to the top, the view... More
