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.
