Alba Iulia is very beautiful and has many open spaces, cathedrals, and a huge fortress with guards in authentic uniforms. The Alba Iulia Fortress is the main point of interest in the city but Alba Iulia also houses the Cathedral of the Reunification of the Nation, an Orthodox cathedral, the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. Michael, and the Voivodal Palace. You can finish sightseeing in a few days, as the town is not very big but if you like climbing or paragliding, you can easily spend a week as the city has very good conditions for it.

Prices are low and locals are extremely friendly so eating out is not only recommended, but it's also a must. There are enough restaurants where you can taste Romanian and Central European cuisine.
