Impressive building are subject to be seen: the Romanian Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral, the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral, The Roman Catholic Cathedral, the Baroque Palace, the Scont Bank, the Huniade Castle or the Great Synagogue. Traces of the former mosques from the period when the place was under the authority of the Ottoman Empire are visible during the walking tour.
