Muzeul Castelul Corvinilor, Hunedoara
(4.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Soak in the atmosphere of medieval Romania in the chambers and dungeons of Muzeul Castelul Corvinilor. 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 Muzeul Castelul Corvinilor can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Visited in as close to Timisoara (where I made the erasmus) and because everyone told me that the Dracula Castle in Bran isn't that great! Great castle with many rooms to visit, nice views and the possibility of Nice shots

  • Cramped country. Castle excellent and well maintained! We had to stretch to our lap, but it was worth it. more than Bran and Peles!

  • The castle in which prisons he was held the real Dracula is definitely worth the visit about 9euros. Ample parking and numerous stalls out, although the area in General seems a bit sad
