Castelul Huniazilor ( Corvinilor ) Hundoara ~ The Corvin Castle ( Hunyadi ) Hunedoara county


Considerat una dintre cele mai vestite proprietati ale lui Iancu de Hunedoara, Castelul Corvinilor e si unul din cele mai importnante monumente de arta feudala gotica din Europa, devenind de-a lungul timpului un punct de maxima atractie turistica.

Legendele castelului :

„Apa aveti, suflet nu!“

In imediata apropiere a intrarii in biserica se afla fantana sapata în piatra de trei prizonieri turci. Legenda spune ca turcilor, luati prizonieri într-una din bataliile castigate de Iancu de Hunedoara, li s-a promis ca, daca sapa direct în piatra si dau de apa, vor fi eliberati. Timp de 10 ani au sapat turcii, au dat de apa, la o adancime de 20-25 de metri, dar, in loc sa fie eliberati, cum era intelegerea, au fost decapitati. Legenda este legenda si ea nu este specifica numai castelului din Hunedoara. Înainte de a fi executati se spune ca unul dintre prizonieri ar fi sapat intr-o piatra urmatoarele cuvinte: „Apa aveti, suflet nu!“.

“Calugarul spion, zidit de viu in peretele Turnului Capistrano”

Situata la nivelul plafonului Salii Dietei, legenda spune ca ultimul locatar a fost surprins spionând, printr-o gaura facuta in zid, tot ce se petrecea in Sala Dietei. Urmarea a fost ca in zidul camerei, gros cam de-o jumatate de metru, a fost sapata o firida si in acea firida a fost zidit de viu calugarul spion.

The Corvin Castle is one of the most important Gothic Buildings in Central Europe, and the only Gothic Castle entirely preserved in Romania. It has survived many centuries of turmoil, having burned 3 times. The castle has large and sumptous rooms and halls with arms and artifacts, towers and bastions. Some of the oldest towers are the last, furthermost defence tower named “Ne boisa” (translation = Do not be afraid) and the Capistrano tower, named after the famous monk from the court.

Vlad Dracul (Vlad Tzepesh / the Impaler a.k.a. Dracula) also spent some time here imprisoned in the castle’s dungeons. In the second courtyard of the castle, beside the chapel, is a well 30 meters deep, which according to the legend was dug out in the rockbed by 3 turkish prisoners which were promised their release if they found water. After 15 years, having finished the well, the promise was broken and the 3 prisoners were executed. Before their execution, they left an inscription in turkish on the wall of the chapel. It is said to say: “You have water but no soul”, but the correct translation of the inscription is: “He who wrote this is Hassan, who lives as slave for the “ghiauri” (turkish term given to romanians) in the fortress near the church.”

  1. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your weblog posts. In any case I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I am hoping you write again soon!

  2. Un loc minunat. Sustin initiativa acestui site! Sunt prea multi cei care critica Romania. Este nevoie si de oameni care sa aminteasca lumii de cat de frumoasa este aceasta tara si cat de multe are ea de oferit! (cel putin din punct de vedere turistic, artistic, geografic, istoric,s.a.m.d).

    • Multumim frumos pentru incurajari …..Acest blog l-am facut pentru cei care iubesc Romania …..pentru cei care s-au saturat sa tot auda ca Romania este un loc plini de oameni urati, lenesi, ignoranti….Poate ca este asa dar daca tii mortis sa vezi partea goala a paharului si te concentrezi pe lucruri negative …ei bine ajungi un orb care nu mai vede frumusetea acestui loc.
      Eu ma consider un om norocos ca m-am nascut aici ….sunt mandra ca sunt romanca !
