Visit Fortress of Deva in 2024

The Fortress of Deva, or "Cetatea Deva" as it's locally known, has its roots tracing back to the 13th century. Over the centuries, it underwent numerous transformations and served various roles—from a fortress to a prison, to a royal residence. Due to its strategic location, it became a pivotal point in regional defenses and witnessed many battles. Although now partially in ruins, its walls still whisper tales of heroism, treachery, and the passage of time. The panoramic views of Deva and its surroundings from the fortress are breathtaking and well worth the climb. To aid visitors, a funicular railway was introduced, offering an easier route to the fortress while also providing picturesque views.
The Fortress of Deva, with its commanding presence and historical significance, serves as a window to Romania's rich past and offers a vantage point unlike any other in the region.
