The Dacian fortress of Sarmizegetusa Regia, a UNESCO World Heritage site in Hunedoara county, will undergo a EUR 3 million refurbishment process. Norway contributed a major sum in the funds through Norway Grants along with EEA (European Economic Area) for the project “Dacia’s capital – A living museum of European cultural patrimony.”

The fortress will be refurbished and the military precinct will be turned into a ‘living museum’. The infrastructural development will lead to covering the access ways, better signage within the site, and a refuge for visitors. Interactive activities to promote the local Hunedoara handicrafts like Dacian ironwork have been planned.
