Károlyi Castle, Carei, Romania 🇷🇴

Today we’re going back in time; 

Welcome to our history class together, taking place at the Károlyi Castle, former home to one of the most powerful families in Transylvania 🇷🇴.

Built in the 15th century, the castle was further fortified until the 17th century, being one of the main defense points against the Turkish danger.

In 1711, it became the place where the Peace Treaty of Satu Mare was signed (not the Vécsey House, as many believe -Art Museum nowadays), between the Hungarian noblemen of Transylvania and the Habsburg Empire.

Nowadays, the castle is open to the public from Tuesday to Sunday, between 9AM-5PM and the entrance is (still) FREE !

Make sure to check out the exhibits, found at the 1st floor; you might need to ask the administration for a key, in case it’s closed.

Can’t wait to show you more of my beautiful Transylvania 🇷🇴❤️.
