Hunyad Castle - Corvin Castle - Hunedoara Castle

Romanian: Castelul Huniazilor - Castelul Corvinilor

Hungarian: Vajdahunyad vára

German: Schloss Hunedoara

Mainly a 15th century castle, with many later additions

The current castle is the result of a fanciful restoration campaign undertaken after a disastrous fire and many decades of total neglect. It has been noted that modern "architects projected to it their own wistful interpretations of how a great Gothic castle should look"
