The Corvin Castle Museum of Hunedoara, Romania, has an activity of over 40 years. The museum is housed by one of the most beautiful medieval castles in Central and Southeastern Europe and has a mobile heritage that currently amounts to approx. 10,000 pieces that are divided into several collections. It is one of the largest castles in Europe and figures in lists of the Seven Wonders of Romania. The most spectacular Gothic-style castle in Romania, Corvin was built by the Anjou family on the site of a former Roman camp. The castle served as a fortress until the mid-14th century when it became the residence of Transylvania’s voivode, Iancu de Hunedoara. Although a museum, Corvin Castle occasionally hosts private functions and special celebrations.
Curators of the exhibition are: Ami Vasilescu and Horia Gherghina.
Mr. Sorin Tincu, archaeologist, director of the Corvin Castle Museum from Hunedoara, spoke at the opening.
You can see art works made by a number of 49 professional artists, most of them members of the Visual Artists’ Union from Romania, from the territorial branches, as well as from the branches from Bucharest.
