Corvin Castle, Hunedoara

(4.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Soak in the atmosphere of medieval Romania in the chambers and dungeons of Corvin Castle. Military figure Iancu of Hunedoara--said to be the illegitimate son of the Hungarian king--built the castle in the 15th century. Legend has it that Vlad the Impaler lost his sanity while imprisoned in the castle's dungeon. The courtyard houses "the bear pit," where two hungry bears allegedly took care of the unwanted. The castle features a lady's chamber with 19th-century furniture, a collection of armor in the knight's hall, a royal chapel, a torture chamber, and the Diet Hall, decorated with medieval flags. Climb to the tower and take a peek at a Gothic fireplace. Using our custom trip planner, Hunedoara attractions like Corvin Castle can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • We visited Korvinov castle on the morning of 18 February, the Interior of the castle is impressive, as are many of the castles of Romania, but the exterior is not particularly. The castle is located in the industrial zone of the city, it was spoiled by waiting area. With regard to the castle itself, today it is more of a Museum, the fee for examination of 20 Lei per adult and 5 Lei per child.
