Brukenthal Castle

judetul Brasov, Transilvania

AddressLoc. Sambata de Jos,

Description

Brukenthal Castle, located inside the stud of Sambata de Jos, was built in 1750 by Count Josef von Brukenthal, brother of Samuel von Brukenthal.

The edifice has a solid construction, its walls reaching 1.2 m, contains 35 rooms where there have been made very beautiful terracotta stoves, the floor is made of oak and people say that on a wall there is also a beautiful freco, covered in the 70’s with a layer of paint.

The construction of the Brukenthal Castle lasted many years, and the land (aprox.1700 ha) was given to the count by the Empress Maria Therezia, for a period of 99 years. In order to show gratitude, Brukenthal built the castle, but there are no evidences that Mary Therezia was ever in Sambata de Sus village. Locals even tell about a passionate relationship between the two, but over time many legends have appeared. Some argue that the Empress has never passed the threshold of the castle, others say that Mary Therezia spent several summers at the castle.
