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.

Since the fortress is under construction, we could only walk around in the park and I liked it a lot, however they should solve the easier approach and a more pleasure one, since the neighbourhood... well... not so good to put it mildly.

The place is still under heavy construction. When it will be ready, for sure it will be an excellent place.

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.

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.

This is another place this part of the country should be proud oIt is relatively well kept but from my understanding it is still being restaurated. A very good example of a fortress, and i might ad one of the few of it's type.
