Castelul Huniazilor - Hunyad's Castle Limousine Tour


Cu cetatea Huniazilor faci istorie tu insuti

Castelul Huniazilor, cunoscut şi sub denumirea de Castelul Corvinilor este unul dintre cele mai importante şi mai impresionante monumente de arhitectura gotică din Romania. Cetatea din Hunedoara a fost una dintre cele mai mari și vestite proprietăți ale lui Iancu de Hunedoara si este cunoscut ca si castelul inconjurat de apa. Aceasta a suferit numeroase transformări în timpul acestuia, fiind folosita atât ca punct strategic întărit, cât și ca reședință feudală. Castelul Corvinilor are 42 de inacaperi, doua terase, doua poduri si o suprafata construita de 7000 metri patrati. În curtea castelului, alături de capelă, se află o fântână adâncă de 30 de metri. Conform legendei, aceasta ar fi fost săpată de trei prizonieri turci, cărora li s-a promis libertatea dacă vor ajunge la stratul de apă. Dar după 15 ani insă, când au terminat fântâna, stăpânii nu s-au ținut de cuvânt. Accesul in castel se face pe un pod de lemn, sustinut pe 4 piloni masivi de piatra, plasati in albia paraului Zlasti, lasand in urma curtea husanilor si nisa ce adaposteste statuia Sfantul Ioan de Nepomuk, protectorul podurilor si al trecerilor peste apa. Acest pod face parte din scenariul productiei americane "Ghost Rider 2-Spirit of Vengeance", cu actorul Nicolas Cage in rolul principal. Filmarile au avut loc pe podul de acces in Castelul Corvinilor, in curtea interioara, in Turnul Vechi si in Turnul Neboisa. Dincolo de importanta sa istorica, interesul pentru castelul Huniazilor se leaga si de o legenda istorica.  Legenda se leaga de fantana din curtea interioara. Astfel, fantana din castelul Huniazilor ar fi fost construita de trei prizonieri turci, corara li s-a promis in schimb libertatea. Se spune ca prizonierii au muncit timp de 15 ani pentru a ajunge la apa, insa in urma acestor eforturi ei tot nu au fost eliberati. Pe fantana se afla o inscriptie care citeste: “Cel care a scris aceasta inscriptie este Hasan, care traieste ca rob la ghiauri, in cetatea de langa biserica.” Pe langa  fantana din curtea interioara, la Castelul Huniazilor din Hunedoara turistii pot vizita si alte obiective interesante: Turnul vechi, practic prima intrare in castel, Capela Huniazilor, o bijuterie arhitectonica, Sala Dietei, Turnul Capistrano, unde a locuit confesorul lui Ioan Corvin si Ansamblul NeBoisa, o galerie inalta, cu patru nivele de aparare. Turistii care viziteaza Castelul Corvinilor din Hunedoara pot participa la spectacole si dansuri medievale in care domnitele imbraca rochii de epoca. Pe lnga spectacolele cu tema medievala, turistii se pot bucura de demonstratii live cu cavaleri si lupte cu spade. Curtea interioara prinde viata prin "Opera Nights," in cuprinsul careia viziitatorii pot avea parte de arii celebre din opere si selectii din arii muzicale. Castelul gazduieste cel mai mare festival de muzica clasica in aer liber, din Transilvania, si se desfasoara in curtea interioara a Castelului Corvinilor. Manifestarea artistica cuprinde, printre altele, in premiera la castel, un spectacol de opera, La Traviata, de Verdi.

Deva Fortress by cablecar

As a courtesy of City Limousine, Corvin’s Castle comes in a combo visiting package with Deva’s Fortress. Dated for the first time in the 1269 century, the fortress was designed as a defense Romanic post for the leading authorities. In 1849 the 13th century fortress suffered a major explosion. The gun powder chamber of the palace exploded and brought the largest part of the castle to ruins, as it remained until today. However, the site is intensively restored, and as of 2014, visitors can use a modern cable car system to reach the top of the hill for a walk through the ruins. On top, one can visit the multilevel terraces and enjoy beautiful 360 panoramic views of both the city and vast surrounding areas. The best time for visiting this site is just before dawn, as people usually enjoy seeing Deva’s skyline.
