The Throne Room, reopened after 50 years


The Throne Room inside the Castle in Fagaras Citadel was reopened to the public, after 50 years of being locked up. Now, tourists may admire the 74 armchairs and a throne, several chandeliers, vintage furniture, but also an armours and old weapons collection. Other restorations were also made to the Prince?s Room near the Red Tower. All these investments lead to obtaining a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, and the castle inside the Fagaras Citadel was declared as the second most beautiful castle in the entire world.

Historical respect

Built at the end of the 15th century, in Renaissance style, the Great Throne Room went through centuries and gave a great meaning to the Fagaras Citadel by turning it into a respected monumental edifice admired by princes, leaders and travellers.
In this impressive room, also named as the Big Palace in documents, the messengers from Tara Romaneasca and Moldavia regions, those of the great ataman of Poland, or of the Ottoman Porte were received. This was also the place where the Transylvanian Diet carried out its activities and Leopold?s Diploma serving as the Constitution of Transylvania until 1848 was accepted. From 1948 to 1960 it was a communist jail, while the Throne Room remained a degraded room until now, when it was restored and rendered in all its glory.

The entire citadel, visited

Starting this summer, tourists can visit the entire citadel, consisting of three sections: the lake surrounding the Citadel, the defensive walls with the towers and the Castle inside the yard, consisting of first floor and two upper floors. The rooms bring together the elegance and the beauty of the vintage interiors with the flexibility of spaces suitable for conferences, symposiums, bilateral or international presentations, teambuilding and training sessions, workshops, national and international events.

Open hours

The Fagaras Citadel is open for tourist visiting from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
The price of a ticket is 10 Lei.
Tourists can visit, included in the same price, the "Valer Literat" Museum of Tara Fagarasului hosting a patrimony of more than 20,000 pieces.
