In a nutshell
Great Romanian Town-http://www.apulum.ro/index-en.htm
hungariangirl896 Says: Alba Carolina Fortress is one of the biggest fortresses in Eastern Europe. When walking up to the citadel, you can see a nice view of the countryside. Inside there is a very old medieval Catholic church, some ruins, and a Romanian orthodox church. It is a nice place to walk...
Take care and don't make fun of Mihael Viteazul's horse. I had a now funny story but then not so nice experience and i haven't been the only one. member Dunemaire told me an old school experience from her when we passed the horse and i laughed. And yes, i'll eventually will write the travelogue with the story. Then we told the story to some friends of mine. They were mildly amused so only missed their train and came back 2 hours later then they planned. She told the story recently to another guy. he thought it funny too. And yes, he too came back a lot later then he wanted too. The story has something to do with the dact that the horse is anatomical correct..

Some parts of the citadel are really old. And sometimes you can find clear evidence of it. In one of the houses in the citadel you can find embedded in the wall the part of an old window. But it has sagged down a lot. The new window has build partially over it byut most of the old window frame has been preserved.

Finally Alba Iulia has a place where to use the bikes. The South and the North places between the walls of the fortress are quite good for biking in the city. The tourists ca rent the bike with 5 lei-1,2 Euros and they can see all the fortress by bike, can stop and have a drink and take pictures.
Equipment: The bikes can be rented from 2 places-the first terrace in the park and on the alley in the fortress from where tourists can also take some souvenirs.

Favorite thing: The one thing of interest to visit in Alba Iulia is the citadel and the buildings in it. The citadel walls are very old, the buildings inside are of more recent date. Though on occasion and if you look well, you can spot an old medieval window frame still embedded in a wall.
On the hill in front of the citadel the 3 peasants that rebelled against the romanian serv-dom were executed. There is a memorial statue fro them there
