Along with several other 'highlights' of Alba Iulia, the museum containing most of the Roman remains and artefacts was closed. As one of the major tourist attractions of Transylvania, this is poor. Check before you go as to what is open.

The place and its surroundings are simply beautiful. You can have long relaxing walks here, children have lots of space for playing and blend it with learning about history. It is definitely a place you need to see in Alba Iulia.

In order to visit the hole building you have to reserve a hole day. Very nice rebuild. If you are nearby you must visit it. The workers deserve a 10.
