The historic Arad Fortress (Cetatea Aradului) is located in the Romanian city of the same name and is impressive. The fortress complex was built in the shape of a hexagonal star with six bastions on a peninsula in 1740-1780. Inside the fortress there were three main buildings, including a church, which is now a ruin.
