Full Day Trip (250km, 8 hrs): Sarmizegetusa Ulpia Traiana – Densus Church – Corvin/Hunyadi Castle
During this day trip, you will have the oportunity to explore more the surroundings and discover 3 beautiful attractions: Sarmizegetusa Ulpia Traiana - the capital and the largest city of Roman Dacia, later named Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa after the former Dacian capital, located in the vicinity. Ulpia Traiana was the political, administrative and religious centre of Roman Dacia in the 2nd and 3rd centuries. Today, the place remains in ruins, with a partly preserved forum, an amphitheatre, and remnants of several temples; Densuș, the place where we can find one of the oldest Romanian churches. This stone monument was built in the 13th century, and some historians assume it is a re-shaped Roman mausoleum; Corvin/Hunyadi Castle (Castelul Corvinilor) - The greatest Gothic-style castle in Romania, Corvin was built by the Anjou family on the site of a former Roman camp. The castle served as a fortress until the mid-14th century when it became the residence of Transylvania's ruler, Iancu de Hunedoara. Iancu upgraded the fortress transforming it into the most stunning castle in Transylvania. The beautifully preserved structure features a sumptuous Knights' Hall, an impressive drawbridge, high buttresses, inner courtyards, a chapel and some 50 rooms resplendent with medieval art.
