Optional sights for visiting on this trip
Curtea de Arges Monastery
The Cathedral of Curtea de Argeș (early 16th century) is a Romanian Orthodox cathedral in Curtea de Arges, Romania. It is located on the grounds of the Curtea de Argeș Monastery, and is dedicated to Dormition of the Mother of God. The building resembles a very large and elaborate mausoleum, and was built in the Byzantine architectural style, with Moorish arabesques. “The legend of master Manole”, which is directly connected to the name of Curtea de Arges Monastery, says that the ruler hired the greatest masters to build the place of worship. But all that they had built during the day fell apart during the night. So one night Manole had a dream, showing him that the construction would resist only if he built his wife in one of the walls. The next day, when his wife Ana came to bring him the food, Manole built her in the South wall.
Fagaras Citadel is an impressively intact fortification from medieval Transylvania. Built over a 12th-century wooden fortress razed to the ground by Tatars, the citadel began to take shape in 1310. During the 15th through 17th centuries, the castle was enlarged and improved, making it one of the strongest fortifications in Transylvania. The Citadel has 85 rooms, one of them being the torture chamber, still preserving the most infamous torture instrument in Europe. During the restoration works, a tunnel was discovered, along with a disturbing historical fact: in the old days, the criminals and traitors sentenced to death were buried inside the fortress walls. Since 1954, the castle has housed the Museum of Fagaras County.
Sibiu is one of the most important cultural centres of Romania and was designated the European Capital of Culture for the year 2007, along with the city of Luxembourg. Formerly the centre of the Transylvanian Saxons, the old city of Sibiu was ranked as “Europe’s 8th-most idyllic place to live” by Forbes in 2008.[ Sibiu’s Old Town retains the grandeur of its earlier days when rich and powerful guilds dominated regional trade. Like Sighisoara and Brasov, it has a distinctly Germanic feeling. Sections of the medieval wall still guard the historic area, where narrow streets pass steep-roofed 17th century buildings with gable overhangs before opening into vast, church-dominated squares such as Great Square and Little Square.
Corvin Castle, also known as Hunyadi Castle is in Hunedoara, Romania. It is one of the largest castles in Europe. Construction began in 1446, on the orders of Iancu de Hunedoara. Built in a Renaissance-Gothic style and constructed over the site of an older fortification on a rock above the smaller Zlaști River, the castle is a large and imposing structure with tall towers, bastions, an inner courtyard, diversely coloured roofs, and myriads of windows and balconies adorned with stone carvings. The castle also features a double wall for enhanced fortification and is flanked by both rectangular and circular towers, an architectural innovation for the period’s Transylvanian architecture. During the 17th century new additions were made, for aesthetic and military purposes. Aesthetically, the new Large Palace was built facing the town. A two level building, it hosted living chamber and a large living area. For military purposes, two new towers were constructed: the White Tower and the Artillery Tower. Also, the external yard was added, used for administration and storage.
Fortress of Deva
Ruled by princes and duchesses, the citadel in central Romania has a rich history. The first evidence of the medieval fortress dates back to the second half of the 13th century. But the signs of habitation are much older. Some discoveries date back to the Neolithic and the Bronze Age.
Located on top of a volcanic hill with an altitude of 378 meters, the citadel offers a unique view. Through this strategic position, the fortress guarded for centuries the exit and entry to Transylvania from the Mures Valley.
