Huniade Castle

The Huniade Castle, Timişoara

The Huniade Castle (Castelul Huniade in Romanian) is the oldest monument of Timişoara, built between 1443 and 1447 by John Hunyadi over the old royal castle dating from the 14th century (built during the reign of Charles I Robert). It currently houses the History Section and the Natural Sciences Section of the Banat Museum.

In front of the museum there are two lamps reminding that Timişoara was the first European town to have introduced electric public lighting in 1864.
