  • The Roman Catholic cathedral is the oldest building in the fortress. The edifice is representative of Romanic monuments in Romania and brings together the four major styles of the medieval and pre-modern age: Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Once you enter this church you feel safe and once you hear the music you feel blessed. If you visit the cathedral - visit the tower as well. You need to ask at the entrance otherwise the tower it is locked.
  • Impressive romanic monument with small gothic influences. Originally built in 1004-1009, then rebuilt in the 13th century, it had it's exterior renovated in recent years and is now in an excellent condition. Be sure to bring a jacket as it's always cold inside, but also be sure to catch some of the evening organ concerts. They are worth it.
