The Fagaras Citadel, over 7 centuries old, has been the Transylvanian governor princes’ residence. The Transylvanian Dieta (consultative gathering) held meetings in the the fortress’ chambers. Rebelling peasants were usually imprisoned in the cellars. A secret tunnel used to link the fortress to the Olt river.
The original fortress was enlarged in the 15th and 17th centuries. When you arrive at the entrance, you will notice the deep moat surrounding the construction. In case of wars, invasions and other threats, the people guarding the fortress filled the moat with water as a defensive measure. Furthermore, the only way to enter the fortress used to be through a single bridge over the moat. Get ready for a special experience as you visit its three floors and five towers.
