Sibiu - Hunedoara

Sarmizegetusa Regia

Once the capital of the Dacian Kingdom, the town was erected on top of a 1200-metre-high mountain, and entirely walled by huge stone blocks.

The site can be reached by a rather difficult long and winding road. After parking, follow a path in the wood for a short stretch.
You’ll reach a large clearing surrounded by vegetation where you can admire the remains of megalithic artifacts, whose origin and purpose still lack a well-grounded explanation.
It’s a mysterious place for its structure and layout, which will leave you astonished.


Densus

Saint Nicholas’ Church

at Densuș

If you are in the area, the little church of Saint Nicholas is a must.
You can spot the bell tower from afar, since the church is right on top of a hillock.
It can boast to be the oldest Church in both entire Romania and southeastern Europe. Religious cerimonies are still held there three times a week.
The structure incorporates lots of architectural elements retrieved from other archeological sites, such as headstones and tombstones, columns, capitals and marble lions.
That’s why Saint Nicholas’, one of a kind, is amazing for its beauty.

Corvinlor Castle - Sibiu - Hunedoara

Corvinlor Castle in Hunedoara

in Hunedoara

An imposing drawbridge leads inside this huge castle in Hunedoara.
A number of rooms open onto the vast inner court of this massive construction, which has a fascination of its own, since each single room recounts a 4-century-long story.
The site is really worth a visit.
