Romanian fortresses cover huge areas and house a lot of modern businesses as well as churches etc. An interesting feature is that different sections were maintained by different town guilds - eg Butchers. You should certainly spend half an hour at this one.

The library has a wonderful collection of books, even first edition; really interesting the area of the library focused on Bolyai, one of the founders of non-Euclidean geometry. There are book guides in many languages (even Italian).

It's nice memories of hungarian literature and history. Simple library for first glance, but if you are a history-lover, you must visit this place and you will find some forgotten memories from Hungarian's history.
