  • if you arrive in this region, you should visit this fortress. it's very beautiful. inside are some rooms full with pictures that describe the fortress buildings before and after restoration. the contrast between what was and what is now is huge. unfortunately there aren't much staff on site, or descriptions beside objects that could explain what is there.
  • I loved the fortress, how it was rebuilt and renovated. It’s a great place for cultural events and any type of event that attracts crowds. Also a good visiting address if you’re just passing through Oradea. I highly recommend taking a tour through some of the inner spaces like the museum or the exhibitions.
  • It's not a huge fortress, but more like a park surrounding by old walls. The big plus is that the attraction is in the city centre, close to other interesting points in Oradea. There are a guided tours which might be more interesting.
  • In mini-vacanta 30 nov.-3 dec. totul era inchis. Am vizitat doar curtea interioara, nu era nici un panou, nici un indicator...pustiu
  • Is a very central place easy to reach, parking available. Nicely restored. There are a lots of stories about the citadel but not officially written and by visiting specialty by yourself you won't discover much about it. Probably worth visiting when popular festivities are organised. In the normal days it would be best to have guide to tell the details.
