Bucharest, Romania

Built in the XV century in Gothic style, The Matthias Corvinus House (also known as the Mehffy House) is famous as it is the birthplace of Matia Corvin, in 1443. His father was Iancu of Hunedoara (John Hunyadi) - great voivode of Transilvania and governor of Hungary. Matia Corvin was a king of Hungary and was born in this house by chance, as there was an inn back in the days and his pregnant mother sought shelter here. The house is important for the city and, after it served many purposes along the years, it houses now The Design and Fine Arts University. You can take a look at the exterior, but the interior isn’t available for visits (only the hallway, between 10:00 AM and 16:00 PM).
