Trip Planner: Europe / Romania / Transylvania / Western Romania / Hunedoara County / Hunedoara / Castelul Corvinilor
Soak in the atmosphere of medieval Romania in the chambers and dungeons of 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 Castelul Corvinilor can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Impressive medieval castle revealing lots of information about the daily life of that times. The greatest surprise was in the bedroom of the princess where an extraordinary musician was performing wonderful classical pieces of music with rare ancient-style musical instruments! Another surprise was the wooden ladder leading high up inside one of the castle's towers where the view is breathtaking. The only negative point has to do with the toilets that were not as clean as they should, being in such a tourist place.
Superb castle, voted one of the best in Europe. It is a recommended must to visit, in almost the original state. You can visit most of it, and there are annually 4,5 movies that are filmed on this location. Gorgeous medieval castle. Visit Hunedoara! Visit Romania!
