The second day of our tour of Romania will start early in the morning, and we will make our first stop in Hunedoara, where we will take a tour of Corvin Castle, a monument with a particular charm. Also known as Hunyad Castle due to its main inhabitant, John Hunyadi, it is one of the largest castles in Romania.
Our next stop will be at Alba Iulia, the town which was home to one of the most important events in Romania’s History, the Union of Transylvania with Romania. We will visit the Alba Carolina Fortress, built between 1715 and 1738 in the Vauban architectural style by more than 20,000 Romanian peasants.
Driving away from Alba Iulia we reach Turda, a small village which is home to one of the coolest underground attractions in the world, according to Business Insider, the Turda Salt Mine. At the end of its 13 underground floors, you will find a spectacular theme park, equipped with a Ferris wheel, mini golf course, tennis court, and a lake.
At the end of the day, we will reach Cluj-Napoca, the largest city in Transylvania and one of the largest student centers in Romania. After taking a walking tour through the Old City Center, you will have free time to explore the local cafes and bohemian restaurants near the hotel.
Overnight in Cluj-Napoca.
