Extraordinary absolutely everything. From the ladys and men who welcomes you to the flower pot. Speechless. History is the true soul that represents us. Their example, of those who support this wonder of nature in understanding what tourism means must be proved. BRAVO thousand times

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.
