THE BEST CASTLE IN ROMANIA – CORVIN CASTLE
The Corvin Castle, also known as Hunyadi Castle, is in my opinion the best one in Romania. It’s much more interesting and beautiful than the Bran Castle. It’s more complex and it’s considered one of the largest castles in Europe.
It is an imposing medieval castle with a Renaissance-Gothic style built in the 14th century in Transylvania.
I visited the castle last summer after months of wishing to get there and as soon as I stepped inside, I felt all the history. It sounds like a cliché, but it really gives you a feeling of time traveling. The wait and the long distance was worth it, I was not disappointed. I spent a few hours going inside every single room and corner and admiring every door and window. I was fascinated, it was exactly as a medieval castle is supposed to be and feel.
I especially enjoyed the “backyard”, I’m not sure if I was allowed to go there, but it was really cool. I made a video with the back view of the castle because you will only find the front view on the internet.
So I highly recommend you to visit if you ever get in Romania, because it’s truly an experience. It’s one of the very few places in Romania I will openly and strongly recommend for people to visit as it is a must-see, especially if you’re a fan of castles.
P.S. : During my visit, I couldn’t take many photos because I was too fascinated, so I used a photo from Wikipedia for my blog. https://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castelul_Hunedoarei – https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/48/Castelul.jpg
