The first place we stopped at was Deva. In Romania everyone knows the story of Deva's castle. The legend says that a woman was walled up into the walls of the building to make it remain standing because before that every night the part of the castle they built that day till morning collapsed.

The castle can be seen from far away, it stands on a hill, at the boundaries of the city. We got on the top of the hill with a modern 'elevator' on a very steep rail.

The view was amazing, the castle was pretty nice, but it was ruined, so the guys in the past hadn't done a good job even if they had killed that poor woman...
