“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

The name is Corvinilor Castle and is amazing. The oldest part of the castle dates from the XIV-XVth century. It comprises 2 rooms and 1 staircase. The rest is "castle grounds" but the towers are amazing.
Loved the castle. Make sure to visit during low season though.

“BEAUTIFUL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I LOVE HUNEDOARA AND THE CASTLE..:-)..X..Stunning views from the top of the Castle. In fact last year I've been there twice..It was wonderful and enjoyable...Yes is true they need to work a little bit more on it as the maintainance is a bit poor; they have started to renovated the Castle long time ago but with Romanian autorities you can't finished quick and you can't never win.......They never had money for National treasures.... I always come back to Hunedoara with my heart open, full of joy, happiness and always willing to visit more around there; because there is where I belong and the mother nature and god blessed that place a lot......even though some people disagree with that.....xxxxx

“worth to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

You need to drive through some abandoned industrial area, residential area and the castle is hidden behind downtown old buildings. We weren't sure that we were on right direction to the castle till we see the castle right after we passed the downtown old buildings. It closed at 430pm.

“Interesting, still a lot to be done to improved, interesting scenary arround”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

I liked the castle and especially the exterior outlook. Unfortunatelly there is still a lot to renovate and not all the rooms can be visited. The interior yard is small and you can not yet go to all balconies with exterior view and to all the rooms.

The exterior view is very interesting - mix of history and industrial remainigs around.

It is a must see if you go to Hunedoara and a nice drive from Timisoara as well.

It's best to have a quide to hear the castle's story. Otherwise it's just a castle... Good souvenir shops, fair prices, very good old wines in the castle's yard shop.
