Not What We Had Expected…


I am referring to the castle of Lazne Kynzvart. Lars and I had expected to see a medieval castle, but we saw one in Renaissance style.

Rupea Castle


During the attacks of the Turks and Tatars, the local population not only sought refuge in the fortified churches, but also in castles. Like for example Rupea Castle, one of the oldest monuments in Transylvania. You have to pay a small entrance fee, in Romanian money. We didn’t have any and asked permission to enter for a couple minutes, so…

Its main attraction is its Baroque castle, which was built in the 16th century. It then served mainly as a hunting lodge and other buildings were added afterwards. It is located on an artificial island and…
