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?

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

Great view of the small square from the top and a helpful woman in the kiosk who gave us a good recommendation for Crama Sibiana.
