Corvin Castle, or the most spectacular Gothic-style castle in Romania, and many call it "one of the seven wonders of Romania". It is one of the largest castles in Europe, and an important piece of history for Romania. Corvin Castle is also the largest medieval castle in Transylvania, surpassing even the mysterious Bran Castle and the royal Peles Castle.  

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 large 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.                       

From Corvin Castle, you will head towards Alba Carolina Fortress, the largest of its kind in Romania.  

Built between 1715 and 1738 in Alba Iulia, previously home to another two fortifications, the Roman Castle of Legio XIII Gemina, and the Bălgrad Medieval Citadel. 

The medieval fortress was part of a fortification system created by Prince Eugene of Savoy designed to ensure the defenses of the newly conquered provinces of the Habsburg Empire. It is one of the most representative Vauban bastion fortifications in Transylvania, and it became one of the Roman Empire's main fortifications in the area. Today, the Alba Carolina Fortress became one of the main attractions of Alba Iulia, by providing a unique historical and medieval ambiance. 

After the visit to Alba Carolina, you will head back to Cluj-Napoca, and the tour will come to an end.
