Day 2: Corvin Castle – Turda Salt Mine – Cristian Fortified Church with Organic Smoked Bacon Tasting and Wine Tasting

First, you’ll visit Corvin Castle, also known as Hunyadi Castle, located in Hunedoara. This magnificent Gothic-style castle dates back to the 14th century and is one of the most well-preserved castles in Europe. It was home to the powerful Hunyadi family and played a significant role in Romanian history. You’ll have the opportunity to explore the castle’s impressive architecture, the Knight’s Hall, the Torture Chamber, and more.
Next, you’ll visit Turda Salt Mine, one of Romania’s most popular underground tourist attractions. This former salt mine, excavated by hand, has a fascinating history dating back to 1075. Some of the main attractions of the Turda Salt Mine are the Franz Josef Gallery, Josef Mine, Crivac Room, Rudolf Mine, and the Terezia Mine. The Terezia Mine is by far the most beautiful part of Turda, with an impressive hall of 90 meters high and 87 meters in diameter, where you will see a “cascade of salt”, an underground salt lake on which you can take a boat ride, as well as various stalactites and other salt formations.
After exploring the underground wonders of Turda Salt Mine, you’ll head to Cristian Fortified Church, which dates back to 1495 and stands on the site of a 13th century Roman basilica. This Gothic-style Evangelical Church is surrounded by two rows of walls guarded by five towers, all erected in the 16th century.
To complete the day, you’ll have the opportunity to taste some delicious local treats. At Cristian Fortified Church, you’ll taste organic smoked bacon, a specialty of the region. And at a local winery, you’ll have the opportunity to taste some of Romania’s best wines.
