In our way to Sibiu we remembered that Hunedoara is well-known because it has a castle built in the 13th century so we decided to stop in this city and search for the castle.

You have to know that in Romania to find anything famous is a true adventure... it's harder to find a popular sight than an unknown small village:P

So after a little bit of detour and wandering around we arrived to the castle (in hungarian it's called Vajdahunyadi Var). It's huge and beautiful and it is in good condition so it's worth to see.
