    Definetely your best bet from Hunedoara. The city is not much touristic, due to the fact that in communist time a lot of steel mills were built in this area. However the castle is absolutely amazing and is one of the nicest that you can find in Romania.

    Admission is not expensive. It is worth trying to seing it in the dark, even if you won't be able to visit every area.

    It has been heard to be possible to rent it for weddings and parties as well.

    If this castle was situated in the mountains during a winter storm, it would fit Hollywood’s vision of Transylvania, but instead it is near a flat valley which is now a ghost town of abandoned factories.

    It is in very good condition and well worth the visit if you are anywhere in western Romania, or have a free weekend. Among other claims to fame, the castle boats a prison cell (chains still intact) where Vlad was imprisoned for many years.

    The castle

    by Mique Updated Jul 2, 2005

    There is actually only one good reason to go to Hunedoara and that is to visit this magnificent castle. I wandered around here for a good time, the castle being virtually empty except for the one tourist group i ran into somewhere along the way. it isn't really furnished much so sometimes it does feel a bit empty.

    Recently the castle has been used for a french documentary. Don't know which one but the castle was closed due to them shooting a documentairy or film there
