Major renovations underway
Sep 2021 • Solo
Unfortunately the whole place is under major renovations, and it looks like this will not be finished soon...I walked all around the fortress, it's an impressive place after all, and it will probably look ok once the works are done, though I feel the finished or about to be finished part look too 'new'...

Disneyland meets incompetent renovation in a medieval settings
Aug 2021 • Couples
Take a medieval fort in a wonderfully romantic setup and knock down anything old in it. Then replace with an approximation of what you thought it might have been when it was new. Skip any useless elements like fireplaces, ceilings, or anything complicated.
Go further and knock down fireplaces and cut in new door openings. Then refurbish the rooms with the same oversize dark and poorly executed furniture in a "naive-medieval-like-meets-hollywood-cheap-medieval-style". With some ordinary old furniture reproduction dotted about the place in between the silly countless black chairs, the historic fort of Fagaras promises to be successfully turned in a Disneylandish + don't touch the exhibits fusion, any reminder of anything old having been efficiently obliterated for the supreme enjoyment of the masses...

Not for small children's

First is opened less then 30% of the building , they claimed to be under restoration. But you gonna discover later as nobody told you when you buy tickets . Second if you have baby in stroller , you better stay outside as they will not let you in. Also nobody told you about that when you buy tickets. Impaired people don't have access.

A sensitive progress versus last years. Even under wirk outside, it worth a visit for the indoor setup. The whole toor puts Fagăraș close to Bran Castle or Corvinilor Castle! We have admired the Crown Hall! The little shop at the end has a lot of surprising souvenirs!

A must see
Sep 2020 • Couples
A 14th century castle in Fagaras.
You can visit the inside of the castle as the outside is currently under renovation.
My suggestion take some time in visiting as it's pretty interesting what you get to see there.
The ticket is 15 lei which is quite decent for such a museum.

Very helpful and friendly staffs at the fortress
Oct 2019
A big fortress with many collections. We had a pleasent visit. The lady staff at the throne room is very friendly and helpful, she even offers to help us take pictures. We realised that we have missed princess's bed room after we finished. Very kind of the lady staff at the entrace to let us go throught again to catch the missed spot,.
