    We continue our trip to the city of Alba Iulia which hosts a beautifully restored 300 year old fortified citadel, built by the Habsburgs on Dacian and Roman (our ancestors) settlements. This is where the Great Romanian Union of 1918 took place - so you can imagine its historical importance. We will visit some major landmarks and enjoy the splendid walking area. Great photo opportunities by the way!

    Changing of the guards in Alba Iulia Citadel

    If there's a fortification there must be guards nearby! During the summer and every day at noon a wonderful and ritualistic moment takes place: changing the guards. An old tradition that goes back into historical times and atmosphere. It's a "must" during our visit!
