Photographer's Note

This is the last in the series of pictures of the medieval castle in Hunedoara (Eisenmarkt/Huniadstadt/Vajda Huniad).

I put together two shots of the same window, one taken from the outside and the other from the inside. This is a gothic window of the Knights' Hall. Unfortunately, the cut stones that make up the window frame have been replaced in the 1800s when the Habsburg Austrian authorities renovated the castle and many of the worn out original door and window dressings and even sections of masonry were replaced. The workmanship does not match that of the middle ages and the stone is of inferior quality. For the building of the castle, skilled craftsmen and masons were brought from Dalmatia, Italy and France. The stained glass windows are a new addition, made up of pieces of glass tied together with lead in a similar way with the medieval technique.
