After reconditioning works it looks very good. I was there when was Oradea City Days. Nice reconstruction works, but it's not finished totally. I take a guided tour to hear all about Fortress history and it was very useful. It seems that near Christmas day it will be open again for visitors and there will be held different events and...

Stroll, enjoy the wide, green space. You can have a picnic here with friends or simply contemplate the ancient walls. Festivities and art inside the citadel.

Oradea Fortress has a rich history starting in the XI century, when a fortified monastery was built here by Kind Ladislau I. Over the last few years, the fortress was restored, its walls cleared of overgrown plants and the trench around it was transformed in a park. Now, the fortress houses events & festivals and has a few trendy vinoteques... More

The fortress looked interesting. Unfortunately it's closed because of reconstruction, so we couldn't really visit it just take a look.

Oradea Fortress has become recently (with the restoration being almost finsihed) one of the main spots for local cultural events, especially during summer. It has many walking paths and is a good way to escape the city noise/pollution. In the near future, a museum will be open to public. Enjoy!

recreates an old atmosphere, silent, that imposes a small bow! really nice, it's a petty that a big part is still under constrution. should take an hour to walk around. There is no fee at the entrance.

This multiple level fortress was an attraction we almost literally stumbled upon while walking around a neighborhood in Oradea. The day was very hot and the thick stone walls created an air conditioned feel; very pleasant. History, sculptures/art work and military interest provided an informative visit.

This could be quite an exhibit if someone paid attention to it. Quite a marvel but not kept up or marketed well. We actually were a bit afraid of the area but once we got over that, it was very nice to walk around and see this exhibit.
