Watching over the city
May 2021
I will not tell you about the history of the place I will tell you about how I felt , history you can dig up on the web if you feel like.
Getting to the fortress can be done in 2 ways - 1 would be taking a "walk" , actually is a climb uphill so if you are not in the best physical shape it would take a while.
The second , faster and with a certain "wow" factor is the cable car. However during weekends it gets crowded by the hour - so if you decide on the cable car, be prepared to wait in line. The round trip is 20 Ron - a little above 4 euros with discounts for the kids, students and elderly.
Once at the top of the hill you can walk around and enjoy the views - on a clear day it can be spectacular.
The fortress has been resorted in the past years and can be quite enjoyable. Fresh air and when I was visiting wasn't very crowded.
Overall a great experience - I recommend you take a trip to Deva when you can.

Great landmark
Sep 2020 • Family
Really a fine place to visit. I really loved to have a walk, up in the fortress. The railed telecabin is quite a nice adventure. There are not a lot of things to do in the fortress, but you can spend half an hour just watching the views.

...great view ...
Jun 2020
Deva fortress (nicknamed "the Key to Mures River")- the symbol of the town -is there since 1269. The fortress is open daily and admission is free. The climb to the fortress is a 45-minute walk on a reasonable path.
Gives you a great overview on the city.

Awesome view from the above, free entrance, beautifully lightened at night. We have seen lizards on the walls, nature was with us!

Nice castle ! Watch out for vipers (haven't seen one , but there are signs everywhere)

We hiked from the base of the hill , it was nice thanks to the trees and their shade.
The castle has been completely rebuild and looks nice!

Wow...

An old citadel with beautiful view and history lessons to be learned. Unfortunately the whole place could be visited only on the outside of the walls, but still impressive! Visit Romania!

Old citadell
Aug 2019 • Friends
Must do while in Deva! An old citadell build on a volcanic hill, which gives you a great overview on the city. Very nice rehabilitation works which struggle to introduce this objective into the great league of tourism. Interesting view, nice place for a sunset, beautiful place to go downhill with a bike.

Dominant site, viewed from a far and really overlooking the small city beneath.
Doesn't seems to be in the best shape, though.
