Yesterday’s visit to Alba Carolina was a perfect introduction to the defense mechanisms of the Transylvanian fortifications. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel in Sibiu, and drive you to Corvin Castle.
Corvin Castle is one of the most impressive in Transylvania and a Gothic masterpiece.
Its name derives from the name of the one who ordered its construction, John Hunyadi, and his son, Matthias Corvinus, the King of Hungary between 1458 and 1490.
Corvin Castle is split into 3 broad areas: the Knight’s Hall, which was used for feasts, the Diet Hall, which was used for ceremonies, and the circular stairway. All of the halls have a rectangular shape, and their walls are beautifully decorated with marble.
Your day will end in Timisoara, the city which will be Romania’s European Capital of Culture in 2021.
The city located in western Romania, near Serbia, is known as „Little Vienna” because of the abundant cultural life, the historical remains, and buildings dating from the 18th century.
Here you will walk through the Timisoara main squares as Union, Freedom, and Victory. You will visit the Orthodox Cathedral, a Neo-Moldavian architectural masterpiece, and Theresia Bastion, one of the old gates of Timisoara fortress.
