Please wear comfortable clothing, we will be spending about half of the time on this tour in the car.
For hundreds of years and before the Great Union of 1918 when present-day Romania was formed, Alba Iulia served as the capital of the Principality of Transylvania. We will go for a walk through different periods of history starting 2,000 years ago with the Romans and learn about the important role Alba Iulia Citadel played throughout Romanian history.
Of Gothic-Reinassance inspiration and used as fortified residence by the Corvin dynasty, rulers of Hungary and Transylvania, Hunyadi Castle is an important medieval military and architectural attraction in Romania and Eastern Europe! Dating from the 15th century and very well preserved, the castle has an impressive history and has been ranked among the top 10 most beautiful in the world!
Marius - thanks for all your help. Your website was very professional, clear and easy to navigate. You responded to my email quickly and accurately. We loved our Corvin Castle tour and our guide Florin was amazing, fun and very knowledgeable. He arrived on time, energetic and ready to go, being a history major at university, he was a wealth of information about everything. He made us feel comfortable and answered all our questions and had a great sense of humor. He gave ample time to see everything and took us to a great place for lunch with a cool Romanian atmosphere. We would highly recommend Romanian Friend to anyone traveling to Romania or Cluj-Napoca!!!
