  • Soimos Fortress is a great attraction on Mures Valley, near Lipova City. The fortress itself is very well preserved and from the hill where this fortress lies, you have a wonderful panoramic view.  more »
  • A nice and easy hike through flower-filled meadows and fruit trees. Once at the top, the views are intoxicating. Man observed the Mure Valley. There, man can see what means a militarily strategic position. The place radiates a special energy.

  • The ruins are in the top of the hill. I climbed the hill with some friends just to see the great view of Mures river. We found a nice and interesting historical place who needs more restoration.  more »

  • My favourite ruin. I love this place, I love to sleep here. The valley of Mures is beautiful view.
  • Ruins of a 13th century Hungarian Fortress, offering panoramic views of the Mures River and the surrounding area. A steep hike up a hill. You can park at the Market by the bridge, and grab water and picnic supplies.
  • There is a rather steep descend to Soimos Fortress but the effort is rewarded once you get there. There is a great view of Mures river and it's surroundings from the fortress walls. All in all the trip there was worth it and I higly recommend it to anyone.
  • Very nice place to have a picnic under the burning sun.
  • Road is not cleared and maintained.
