Boxes for over 400 years, buckles, rings, arrowheads, pieces of ceramic stoves, mugs imprinted with the year1600 or silver coins from 1500 are just some of the objects that were found in lands under the fortress.

Here it was filmed the Romanian-German-Italian co-production directed by Mircea Dragan nominated for "Golden Globe" and "Oscar" for the best foreign film.
