A well maintained medieval bastion and stretch of city walls 3 blocks down the street from the Othrodox Church. It is open for local exhibits (free) and you can climb all the way to the top.

This is the best thing to see in Cluj Napoca and has excellent toilets in the basement. With steel various floors have been created and you can get good views over the town.

This is actually a lovely little building which was obviously part of the old city walls. When we were there it housed an exhibition related to a historic geographical society and was free to visit. Nice enough way to spend 20 minutes.

This wall is from the old days of Cluj history. Its not that much to see. You could park the car and start from here and then walk to Piata uniri. There are some old house to see during the walk.

This tower is one of the last remains of the old fortress of Napoca. Is the single one that you could visit and is very nice place for exhibitions.
