    The Covered Staircase

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Covered Staircase is also known as the prison steps. They were reconstructed in 19-th century, together with the repairs of the City Hall. I found them as the backyard entrance to St. Margaret church and they brought me exactly to Ferdinand square.

    Historical center

    In the historical center you can enjoy Piata Regele Ferdinand I which has a beautiful garden with flowers everywhere! The square is surrounded by typical Transylvanian architecture houses where are located shops, banks, historical remains, restaurants, etc.
    As I said in the beginning, The Medias fortress built in 13 century is still kept with its towers. At the end of 18-th century the defensive system was already called “castle” that consisted 3 large gates, 4 smaller and 19 bastion-towers. Now only 10 towers and fragments of the defensive wall are left.
