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

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!

If you want to have some stairs climbing activity, this is the right place for that. You can also have a nice walk to the top or go by car. There are some restaurants on the way up and on top where you can enjoy some good food, drinks and a nice view over the city of Cluj-Napoca.

It is a great place where you can sit and take thousands of photos and selfies! Sit on one of the benches there, listen to the voice of nature or your fav tune, read a book or simply enjoy the peace and quiet! If you have time, visit the entire park Cetatuia. At one of its edges, there is a... More
