Rupea is mighty fortress on an hill above the village of Rupea. The view is marvelous and on a very clear clear day even the Carpathian Mountains should be visible. The fortress is also an attraction for small kids.

This is a watch tower that was part of the old city fortress. It is on a small hill and requires a bit of climbing up.

Appears to have been overly renovated - it looks almost unreal. It looks amazing on the hill, but we decided not to come in. It costs 10 lei and appears to be quite large inside.
