One of the nicest castle in Transylvania located near Hunedoara. Built at the 15th century by Sigismund, ruler of Luxembourg and gave the castle as a present to the family of Corvin that ruled Transylvania as an appreciation to their help in the battle against the Turks in Constantinople at 1456. It's a beautiful gothic architecture. Don't miss the 38... More

This castle is without a doubt worth the drive to visit. There is lots of information throughout and the opportunity to download a talking guide for your smart phone. The history behind it all is interesting but if your like me and you just like to look then its worth it. I found it very pretty. (although 23 degrees outside... More

Beautiful setting with stream below and weeping willow at the base. I did not have time to enter the castle, sad to say, but I thoroughly enjoyed the hour I spent outside walking around and taking photos. It is a great place to take family and friend photos... with castle in background. (If you come in from Timisoara, you will... More

This is one of the greatest medieval castles in Transylvania region and in Romania. Built in Gothic-Renaissance style, the work at the construction started in the 14th century. There are a few legends and historical facts surrounding this castle. For example here was imprisoned prince Vlad of Wallachia (commonly known as Dracula or Vlad the Impaler). He was held prisoner...

The castle is stunning from the outside and its rooms are nicely decorated. Among others, the castle has a "knights' room", a "princesses' room" and a "torture room". Decorations seem authentic and give a real feeling of medieval Transylvania. One can listen to live medieval music in some of the rooms. As a bonus, a foreign tourist might enjoy the... More

Spectacular view from the bridge located at the northern entrance of the casle... One can evade from our days for a short medieval experience at the Corvin's Castle. In some rooms you can enjoy medieval live music. I had a great experience with an artist [historian at the Castle] that produced am impressive "translation" of medieval lute music for vibraphone...
