This castle was founded in the 14th century, and re-built during 1453 by the Romanian Voivode (Duke) Iancu de Hunedoara (also known as Ioannus Corvinus or Janos Hunyadi). It is surrounded by a deep moat, with a narrow bridge to enter, and many towers and spires.

This castle is almost intact, open to the public to wander around freely, but is surrounded by industrial eyesores.
