Soimos Fortress is a great attraction on Mures Valley, near Lipova City. The fortress itself is very well preserved and from the hill where this fortress lies, you have a wonderful panoramic view.

The ruins are in the top of the hill. I climbed the hill with some friends just to see the great view of Mures river. We found a nice and interesting historical place who needs more restoration.

Although getting to the citadel it's not exactly a "walk in the park", I recommend it! The citadel is very interesting and the view it's absolutely beautiful!

The ruins of a fortress, without being too maintained. The road to the top is undeveloped, but the views on Mures Valley deserves. There is parking space for your car safely to leave the fortress walls ... Besides there is nothing above the city ......More

Really amazing view over the surroundings - hills, river Mures, Maria Radna church! It's worth the climb, takes like 30-40 minutes.

These 13th century ruins are worth the hike. After visiting the Basilica in Radna, it's a short drive to the base of the house hill, then a 20 minute uphill hike to the top of the cliffs where the Fortress sits. View are spectacular.
