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

Cetatuia Hill is a place where from you can have a spectacular panorama of the downtown of Cluj. Nevertheless, there are also places with local historical importance to be visited. At the end of your ascending, take a tour of the local park, then you could have a cup of coffee or a tasty cake or ice cream at the... 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

A walk up the hill provides a decent view of Cluj. Walkways could be better maintained. Many of the masonry steps are broken and there's a lot of trash laying around. Not many people when I went up there. I saw a single elderly woman crocheting an Afghan while seated below the big crucifix. She seemed happy. I left.

Located in the heart of Cluj, the hill offers a beautiful view over the City. Wonderful for Shorts hike, there are quite a few stairs to climb, but the view is worth the exercise!
