This is the Oradea place of birth. A lot history here. The 5 angle fortress is under reconstruction right now. The works should be over this ear and after that tourism should flourish here. The fortress is surrounded by a beautiful park.

With a history of almost 1000 years, Oradea Fortress has every asset to become a first rate tourist attraction. Throughout its history, the Oradea Fortress served as residence for the Roman-Catholic Diocese of Oradea (1092 – 1557), as well as a strictly military fortress (1557 – 1857) governed by various successive administrations. Inside the citadel are some institutions as: Art... More

The Fortress is going into a great process of transformation and restoration. The park that is located in the Fortress moat is great for walks. It is one of the symbols of Oradea and it's well worth visiting.

I really can't understand the good reviews for this place. There is a pleasant park outside, true, and the walls are quite massive, but it is a castle, after all. The whole of the inside was supposed to be off limits to visitors, as it is basically one big construction site. I was allowed to walk through, but it was... More

The good part is that it's an iconic place for Oradea and you can learn much about the city's history here. The not-so-good part is that it's been in renovation for a long time and still it doesn't look as good as it could look. Compared to fortresses of other cities, I don't like it that much, especially because it's... More

Unfortunately is still in renovation and I wasn't able to go inside the walls, but they did a good job outside - the whole moat of the fortress was transformed in a nice park.
