Castles to see while visiting Romania

  

Peles Castlec europe update

Bran Castle 

Most known for its connection to Bram Stokers character, Dracula, the castle draws in around half a million tourists each year. While the “original vampire” is pure fiction, and the author has never even visited Romania before or after writing his book, Bran Castle is still marketed as Dracula's castle because of a supposed link to Vlad the Impaler. The notoriety surrounding this historical figure provides just enough sense of wonder for people visiting and sets the castle apart from the others, with its intriguing local and international lore. Setting myths and local legends aside, Bran Castle is also a beautiful sight to see.
Residing majestically on top of a cliff, it pays respects to medieval architects and military strategists. Close to the beautiful city of Brasov and being guarded by the Bugegi Mountains from the east, Piatra Craiului from the Vest, make this not only one of the most interesting fortresses in Romania but also a perfect wallpaper image.
Bran castle has been functioning as a museum of history and feudal art since 1956. The castle was only closed during 1986 to 1993 due to restorations. When the state lost possession in favor of the rightful heirs, it moved some of the art and historical artifacts away. However, the new owners realized the importance and impact the castle has on Romanian tourism and decided to keep it available for tourists, and even redecorated with personal family memorabilia.
Peles Castle (in photo)
Fitting for a country with such architectural beauty, that not far from “Dracula's Castle”, a mere 44km away from Brasov stands another impressive structure once home to kings now, turned museum. Although it had its share of bad days during the communist period, once the democratic regime came to power after 1989, the castle undergone restoration work and was declared a national heritage site, before being opened to the general public. Some estimates put the cost of construction (without any restoration work) at approximately US$ 120 million, in modern day terms.
It was commissioned by King Carol I of Romania (1866-1914). Peles Castle is known as the royal summer residence. After 1900, a new floor was added to the original building, bringing the room total to 160 and over 30 bathrooms. The 3400 sq ft castle was once the home of one of the most important painting collections across Europe, as well as over 4000 European and Asian pieces of weaponry dating from the 14th to 17th century period. Only 35% of it is opened to tourists but there are still plenty of things to admire.
Peles Castle is surrounded by several smaller building, all built at the same time. The most notable of them all being the power plant. This allowed the castle to be the first in the world fully powered by electricity. The smaller Pelisor Castle is used as a presidential residence while the rest have been turned into hotels or restaurants to cater to the many visitors.
Corvin Castle
This is a structure built in the 15th century on orders from Ioan of Hunedoara, a ruler known for valiantly defying the Ottoman Empire, during his time. It covers an 8000sq ft area, with 42 rooms, two terraces, and two bridges. The main access point is a wooden bridge supported by four stone pillars anchored in the Plastic River. The gothic architectural style makes it look very appealing while the cannons remind visitors that this is still an imposing military structure.
There are quite a few folk tales about events that took place in this castle. From housing the notorious Vlad the Impaler to executions and torture of prisoners of war, or a monk spy being buried alive in a wall of a small tower, there are many eerie things that add authenticity to the castle. Unlike more modernized historical sites, Corvin Castle is one of those places preserved more carefully, with great attention to detail and no additions that spoil the original version of the building.
Probably because of so many tales that can't be confirmed or denied by anyone, the castle became the host on two occasions for paranormal tv shows. This combination of mystery and well preserved structural detail are what make the Corvin Castle unique.
Karoly Castle
Located in Carei, this two story 17th-century baroque castle with over 40 rooms started out as a house for the noble Karolyi family. The improvements in construction were designed to make the residence more defendable against the Ottoman threat. From home to garrison (occupied by Nazis), from sanatorium to high school this building is filled with rich and troublesome history.
The castle has three permanent exhibits consisting of 18th-century furniture, South African trophies, and local artifacts. While the décor on the inside makes people feel like stepping into a world hundreds of years into the past, the outside is not at all less impressive. Karoly Castle is surrounded by a majestic dendrological park which makes the entire area an amazing sight to visit during warm seasons.
Even though it is one of the more modern type buildings, it is not without its share of legends. From secret tunnels and walled off cellars filled with Nazi gold, there are plenty of things to learn from the elderly locals, always eager to tell tales and keep the mysteries surrounding the castle, alive.

Heritage sites to visit in Romania

  

Romania

Since the arrival of the discount airlines in the year 2007 along with the EU membership, it has put a damper on the increase in the tourism profile of the country Romania. This is changing significantly with thanks to the incredible diversity of the country in relations to the very affordable rewards they offer. This country has many major heritage sites that attract a significant amount of tourists.

The Sighisoara historic center is among the country's most visited heritage sites and is the busiest of all the heritage sites in the country. The citadel was comprehensively restored and this has attracted an even bigger audience of tourist to the destination. The half a century-year-old clock tower along with the other beautifully colored buildings and the cobble stone streets are the major attractors of the destination. The collection of museum found at the destination is also another of this site's major attractions.
In Transylvania, approximately thirty kilometers to the southeast of Sighisoara, the Biertan's Saxon church is found. This is a fifteenth-century Anglo-Saxon church that has a very imposing demeanor and a formidable security system. The building is protected by a stunning nineteen locks backed by the double wall that surrounds the building. The locking system of this church was recognized by the Paris World Expo in the nineties for the craftsmanship in the engineering of the system. This locking system is operated by the single locking mechanism that controls the entire system.
The ground of the church is home to other small buildings including a very popular bastion. This building was used in the process of trying to keep married couples together. It is used to find the love lost by couples by keeping them locked together for weeks. This was a very effective divorce and only a single coupe was unable to be treated in a span of four hundred years with the uses of this building.
There is an atmospheric Saxon village that has been restored and lies also to the southeast of Sighisoara that is also a site of interest in this country. There is a lovely view of the valley from the top of the twelfth-century church tower with the only access being steep open stairs. The same views can be seen from the top of the bastions and the journey to their tops is a lot less intimidating. The church is also the home of a two-level museum that will be worth investigating.
The brightly and beautifully colored homes that decorate the village and the serene and traditional village experience to be had is really the major attraction of this site. There are places where you can get bedding for overnight in the coveted rest areas of this village. There have even been two houses in the area of Viscri that was purchased and restored by Prince Charles. He has been a long term fan of the Romanian heritage.
The prince is also responsible for painting a few monasteries in the area of Sothern Bucovina. This is a region on the northeastern side of Romania s that has a sprinkling of brightly painted fifteenth-century style monasteries. These buildings are creatively painted with several sporting murals depicting biblical scenes. The paintings are not only found on the exterior of these buildings but they are also found on the inside of these monasteries. Some have been exceptionally preserved despite been battered by the elements for the years. The painting on the building makes them some of the Europe's most exciting achievement in terms of artistry. The unbelievable life span of the buildings' painting is a part of the appeal the other side of the equation. The other side of the equation rest on the stories and the depictions found in the murals.
Many of these sites can be accessed by regular transportation but to get the full of what they offer, it is recommended that one hire the services of a tour guide. Most of these monasteries were found for god by Steven the Great in thanks for being victorious over the Ottomans.
