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.

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.

Before 1990 we couldn`t go inside there because was some...military barracks. Now is under reconstitute, already they finished an very nice theatre for outside shows, an old bread factory and others. Around to the fortress it`s a ditch where hundred years ago was water, now is a very nice park with big trees and two small lakes with water lily.... More

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.

With a history of almost 1000 years, Oradea Fortress has every asset to become a first rate tourist attraction.

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.
