Sibiu Day Trip to Corvin (Hunyadi) Castle & Alba Iulia Citadel

Adela With: Adela 16
Let's visit Corvini Castle, one of most stunning Gothic castles in Europe, a mysterious place full of legends and stories (known also from the movies "Dragon Heart" and "The Nun"). We'll also visit the citadel of Alba Iulia - a place with a history of more than 2000 years but, most important, the place where modern Romania was born in 1918. Two of Romania's best attractions in just one day!


Moments to expect during the Corvin (Hunyadi) Castle tour:

  • A Gothic - Renaissance 500 year old castle with an impressive history

    Starting our trip from Sibiu we will travel in the countryside to Corvini Castle, also known as Hunyadi Castle. We will learn about its agitated history, visit its courtyard, old towers and interior rooms. We'll learn about the romantic legend surrounding the raven that represents the owner family seal.

  • The Alba Iulia 5-star fortified citadel and its major landmarks

    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!
    We might also have the chance to witness the changing of the guards.

  • Changing of the guards in Alba Iulia Citadel

    Changing of the guards in Alba Iulia Citadel

    If there's a fortification there must be guards nearby! During the summer, 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!

    Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa was the political, administrative and religious center of Roman Dacia in the 2nd and 3rd centuries, after these lands were conquered by the Roman Empire. Today the archeological site known as Sarmisegetusza Ulpia Traiana consists of ruins of a well-preserved forum, amphitheater, and remnants of several temples.
