The Fagaras Citadel, almost 7 centuries old, has been the Transylvanian governor princes' residence. In its chambers the Transylvanian Dieta (consultative gathering) used to meet and its cellars were often used as prison cells for the rebelling paysants. A secret tunnel used to link the fortress to the Olt river.

We shall enter fearlessly this nowadays tamed to be museum citadel and even have a medieval-style lunch while being entertained by musicians and knights in the restaurant now functioning in the old cellar.
