  • Located deep within the inner sanctum of the Transylvanian city of Deva (Romania), the Bethlen Castle (also known as “Magna Curia” or “Castelul Bethlen”) is one of the most imposing sights in the region. Built between the years 1582 and 1621, it served as the residence of quite a few notable historical figured such as Sigismund Báthory, Giorgio Basta, Stephen Bocskay, Gabriel Báthory, and, of course, Gabriel Bethlen. Adhering to the standards of the Renaissance and the Baroque architectural styles (it was built to incorporate the former style but subsequent renovations swayed it towards the latter), it currently harbours the Museum of Dacian and Roman Civilisation (since 1882).
