The Foisorul de Foc (Firewatch Tower) was constructed in 1893 and was at the time the tallest building in the city. It is 50 meters high. Contrary to the popular belief its purpose was simply to be a place from where the city's authorities could watch for fires. It at no stage stored water. The tower today hosts a less than gripping and mono-lingual Museum of Firefighting and Policing, the best bit of which is the view from the old observation deck, closed for decades but now thankfully reopened. Note that it is usually packed with kindergarten and school groups.


OpenĀ 08:00-16:00. Closed Sat, Sun.
