Totally recommendable. Even tho i think views aint fantastic, I think its one of the best pointviews of the city and if its sunny its pretty nice to go up the hill to enjoy some time, either in the cafe, either in the grass. Enjoyed it.

You can't miss it if you're in Cluj. It's close to the city center and by walking up the stairs into this park you can get to a nice panoramic view of the city. There are benches on which you can sit for a while and admire the surroundings, read etc. And if you get hungry, there's a few places... More

Worth a walk especially on a warm sunny day. It offers great views of the city and it is a great location for the sun set.

It's simply the best place to see the city from above. You should go and have a drink (or two) at one of the bars on top of the hill.

Visited on a lovely sunny Sunday in November and was not surprisingly popular with locals enjoying the view and chilling out on the benches and concrete. Popular with all types. Various views of town below. Cluj is not the most picturesque to look down on but some historic buildings make their presence felt alongside the modern skyline so not bad.... More

From Cetatuia Hill you can see the whole city snd especially at night you see all those lights and it's amazing. You have to go and visit it. It's quite a distance to walk but they have benches and restaurants on the way up. It doesn't cost you anything to walk there and you won't regret it. Don't forget your... More

Cetatuia Hill is a place where from you can have a spectacular panorama of the downtown of Cluj. Nevertheless, there are also places with local historical importance to be visited. At the end of your ascending, take a tour of the local park, then you could have a cup of coffee or a tasty cake or ice cream at the... More

If you can get past the stray dogs that are all over the place, you get to this nice view of the city. Do not try this after dark!
