After paying an entrance fee, we were asked if we wanted a free tour. Yes! Then the young man asked if we wanted the quick tour and no, we want to see it all. And that we did. He took his time answering our many questions, in good English, and showing us the "must sees" as well as some of... More

Besides the fact that it's about 500 years old and well preserved, you get to climb up to the tower. Vertigo sufferers beware. Heart patients too. But once you get up there, the view from the tiny windows are worth it. There was one that could open while the others were nailed down. Good luck finding it. Now for the... More

Enjoyed the church and the fact that Vlad Draculea's son was buried there. The tower was worth the 110 steps to get there. Views were beautiful. Windows would open for the view to get pics. The bells still ring and are quite loud if you happen to be there when they go off.

1.It is not often that I can reccomend a place with no reserve and to almost anyone. The evangelical cathedral is a maze of angles and shapes, materials and stories waiting to be discovered. Visit it earlier on in the day as the above tend to be more difficult to be seen in the sea of tourist rushing to take... More

As the title suggests, the first experience inside is an obnoxious woman collecting the entrance fee. I asked her when she works, which is the pm. I'll come back in the am. Don't subsidize rudeness.

It is a bit higher that the Turnul Sfatului and the view is breathtaking. The ticket is not expensive and the way up there is like a little adventure.

The tower offer a great view and the building itself is quite nice. If you are in the city anyways don't miss it.

Not only is the view of this very scenic city great, but the climb itself was fun. You get a real sense of the wood structure of the interior of the tower as you climb. It's not for those afraid of heights or slightly dark spaces.

I've visited the inside of the cathedral for the first time last month. It is impressive and simple in the same time, pretty well organized, for a nice view over the city you should climb the stairs to the tower. This tower is nicer during summer times, it doesn't have glass windows, than Turnul Sfatului which is nicer during winter.
