Photographer's Note

The reconstructed torture chamber in the Hunedoara Castle Dungeon. Wasn't sure whether to call this 'Just hanging around' or 'Another tortuous day'. Western Romania was ruled by the Austro Hungarian Empire for hundreds of years. I'd imagine you would have to do something pretty serious to be strung up like this. There is a similar chamber of horrors adjacent to the Vitus Cathedral in Prague Castle. A bit kitschy perhaps, but gives us an insight into how justice used to operate a few centuries ago. There was no appeal system on human rights to the United Nations back then!
