    A locality situated beyond the Carpathian Mountains, where we have this fortress, already quite old, and who have already served in jail during the time of communism. He is currently a very interesting Museum with displays of some of the traditions of Romania.

    For those who visit the fortified churches of Transylvania (especially with children) this fortress is a completely different place and not to be missed. It is located on the road between Sighisoara and Sibiu, about 1 hr of Viscri. Big fortress with moat, towers and ramparts to the Vauban which can go around, she was attacked about 15 times to the wire of the centuries and never taken. The inside of the torture rooms, traditional clothing, medieval objects. The throne room is "brand new", restoration too showy, but the building is definitely worth the visit

  • Well maintained with a very interesting museum. Mix of both indoor and outdoor. Worth a visit.
  • Very nice place. Interesting and historical place. It's nice to spend a lot of hours there.
  • One of the most exciting castles to visit in Romania. The museum is well taken care of and they have a lot of exhibits placed on multiple levels. If you look carefully you shall find secret path ways from floor to floor and room to room. We visited in February, I assume coming in the summer will be nicer so you can enjoy the outside.
  • Beautiful old castle... surrounded by water. Home of many swans.
  • Interersting fort on the edge of town. Long history with some interesting exhibits. It's unfortunate that they have removed the entire interior and replaced it with a new one in renovating one of the main state rooms thereby removing much of its historical value but worth a visit for sure.
