Banffy Castle - A unique experienceThe Banffy Castle - A unique experience

If you think you're born in the wrong era, then you should definitely make it through Banffy Castle in Bonțida, if you decide to came in Cluj-Napoca.

Today the castle entered into a program of consolidation because over the past years the building suffered several damages. The restoration of the castle began in 1999 by an agreement between Romania, UK and Hungary, agreement that involved Prince Charles of Wales who personally visited this place during the beginning of restoration. In 1437 started off its construction, but the first mention of it in a document was in XVII century in a military report.

My first time here was with the occasion of the second edition of Electric Castle festival and I was simply speechless. I could not believe that a place like this can radiate such mysticism. I am talking about the mysticism which has the power to fascinate you irremediably, that can keep your smile stuck on your face for hours and pours into your spirit in a calculated way effervescence without being skimpy about it. I thought it was something in the air, a sort of a microbe because of whom you are positive and you stop wondering why is that so. It was definitely something in the air and the castle was to blame!
