The castle is surrounded by water and has an interesting system of fortifications. While the walls and towers are not very well maintained, the museum inside is pretty impressive, covering not only the castle's history but also history of the region and aspects of village life. You can see various living chambers, narrow staircases, the dining room, the throne room,... More

It is a nice and well preserved fortress. The dungeon is nice and also the renovated part also. If you are in Fagaras you should go visit it, it is worth it!

It is a very well preserved fortress. A lot of fun for kids great experience for adults. Is was started in 14th century and finished in 16th century. It had different purposes from fortress to jail and bishopric.It is a great place to visit and should be included in the touristic circuits.

Fagaras fortress is one of the best organized and managed fortresses in Romania. Although less famous than many other castles in Romania, I was pleasantly surprised to find a well preserved fortress, with a very well built tour step by step through the fortress. I could actually understand how the fortress came to be, what its role was throughout the... More

During our visit while it was raining we were visiting the museum on the first floor and the chambers on the ground and while... More

Although the town of Fagarash is not on the main tourist circuit for Transylvania, this fortress should be. It is a gem and deserves a lot more international tourist support and acclaim. With its romantic turrets, moat and courtyards, this 13th Century fortress would not look out of place with the glorious chateaux of the Loire Valley in France. It... More

The biggest difference on this attraction compared to the other in Romania is that here we have paid just as it was written on the ticket list and for the kids we received "free tickets" (6 y.o. was the older). The castle is in a great condition, everything is really maintained and a lot of work is done on the... More
