Corvin Castle - One day minivan tour from Oradea,


Corvin Castle is split into 3 large areas: The Knight's Hall, the Diet Hall, and the circular stairways, and they are surrounded by both circular and rectangular towers, that were used for both defense and as a prison. It is said that the prison also had a bear pit, where the prisoners were thrown after they served their purpose.
The elaborate architecture was designed in a rich gothic style, that accentuates the already impressive architecture. The castle was kept in regal condition during Hunyadi's lifetime, but after he died, the castle fell into swift decline. It was not until the 17th century that there was more interest in restoring this medieval castle. As the restoration work began, the workers redesigned the castle to reflect what they considered a gothic castle should look like, which explains much of its currently fanciful look.
