Vajdahunyad Castle (Vajdahunyadvar) reviews
I would recommend to enjoy the outside. The inside is a museum but not super interesting. Frequently there are festivals with booths nearby and that's fun to visit. more »
This modern castle never fails to impress. Despite it being less-than-stellar during winter time, we returned to it, and enjoyed a stroll through its gardens and courtyards. more »
1 Euro to get into the higher tower with a tour! The view is beautiful as well. Nice grounds to walk around and see other things. Wear good walking shoes. This location is not central so plan to spend time getting there (40 min from old city)
Vajdahunyad castle gives home for many different shows / exposures time to time which are worth to visit. Although you can't visit the entire castle you can walk through its awesome yard, sit down the shore of its tiny lake which are a very relaxing timepiece.
