It's a nice medieval bastion close to the Orthodox church. It's open for local exhibitions. You can also climb to the top and admire the views.

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.
