Discover the wonders of Alba Iulia, the spiritual capital of Romania, and get lost in a fairy tale with a visit to Corvin Castle.
Alba Carolina Citadel & Corvin Castle
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Cluj at 8:30 am and set off for Alba Iulia, a small town that has one of the most spectacular fortresses in Europe, the Alba Carolina Citadel.
After an hour and a half's journey through the Romanian countryside, we'll arrive at this fortified military city that was once part of the Roman Empire. We'll enter the Alba Carolina Citadel itself, named after the Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI, known as Carol VI in Romanian, and marvel at its unique star shape. Throughout the tour, we'll admire its main attractions and enjoy its peaceful atmosphere.
Then we'll stroll through the cobbled streets of Alba Iulia and discover the Romanesque St. Michael's Cathedral, a beautiful example of medieval Romanian architecture. Our tour of this small, fascinating town will end with a visit to the Coronation Cathedral and we'll find out about its link to the Romanian monarchy and the union of the Transylvanian region with the rest of the country.
At the end of the visit to Alba Iulia, we'll make a stop along the way so that you can enjoy some free time to have lunch.
After lunch, we'll continue our tour as we set off for the region of Hunedoara. After an hour's journey, you'll begin to make out the silhouette of Corvin Castle, one of the largest Gothic buildings in Romania. Inside, we'll reveal the mysteries hidden within its walls and its relation to the infamous Vlad the Impaler. Our tour will continue as we learn a little more about the history of the Romanian monarchy and what life inside the castle was like in medieval times.
At the end of the trip, we'll make our way back to Cluj, dropping you off at your hotels by 7:30 pm.
