Photographer's Note

First mentioned in 1304 the fortress of Bologa was built to defend the strategic road leading from Hungary into Transilvania. The Sultan of turkey ordered its demolition in the 17th century after the Ottomans captured the nearby city of Oradea and the fortress was hindering the local tax collection, but fortunately this order was never carried out.
