  • 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...  more »

  • Looks like a lot of effort was put here to keep the place looking good. I enjoyed my walk in the fortress and over the crenels, and that gives a nice view. Usually (depending on season) there are swans in the water.
  • Pros: i. Recently renovated ii. Plenty to see inside the fortress with lots of info iii. The Women in Communism exposition iv. Pretty quiet v. Low fee for entry vi. Museum inside vii. Cats!! I like cats so that's a pro for me Cons: i. Not advertised enough Overall: I had pretty low expectance for this fortress as my father visited it some 10 or more years. Lucky for me, they did a great job renovating it. I never expected to stay more than 40 min but the tour took almost 2 hours. Bonus points from me - i have seen a kitten. If after the tour you feel like eating close by in a good restaurant with good food, great view I recommend you @the corner.
  • Don't skip this fortress. Very beautiful and interesting. Also for kids. A lot benches and shade in its surroundings. For kids there's a big playground nearby.
  • AMAZING! the fortress is very well maintained! You can go visit the inside and enjoy a trip back in time when kings and queens ruled the land! It still has some of the original furniture, lots of old artifacts and clothes exposed. They basically turned the fortress into a museum. You can also go visit the dungeon and see the torture room and also go up on the wall and visit the towers. That also gives you the best view of the city! A must see historical site!
  • This place was an unexpected gem in Făgăraș. It's a gorgeously restored citadel, with a small history museum of the county. Compared to the nearby Bran Castle this is a lesser known attraction and you will get a chance to explore it at a leisurely pace, without hoards of people hurrying you along.
