Alba Iulia is one of Romania's oldest cities and where the unification of Romania was declared twice, in 1599 and again in 1918. This historic city is worth a stop to see its 18th-century citadel (Cetatea), several churches and cathedrals, palaces and museums. One highlight is the Batthyaneum Library, which contains an extensive display of medieval books and art. You could easily spend a few hours there. 165 mi/265 northwest of Bucharest.
