Neamț Citadel –  Cetatea Neamț

The Neamț Citadel, a medieval fortress in northeast Romania, served as a key defense against the Kingdom of Hungary’s expansion. First documented in 1395, the citadel was one of Moldova’s most fortified strongholds. It was refurbished between 2007-2009 and now operates as a museum, featuring 21 rooms such as a chapel, prison, armory, and a council hall. The citadel is uniquely accessed via a wooden bridge built on stone pillars.
