The fortress of Râşnov is at the top of mountain with great views all around. The citadel itself is very interesting and is "alive", there are craft shops, souvenir shops, café, tourist information point. You can throw the ax, or listen to the famous Romanian traveler which dressed in period costume guides his small gallery. All in authentic buildings. Much... More

I like the castle. It has a lot of histoire between his walls. I like that it looks old and the repairs are ok. I do not like the sellers inside of the castel streets who do not fit into the landscape. The area is accessible by foot even you can get up with transportation, 10 minutes ok waking are... More

We were there with our youth kids and really enjoyed the visit. The place is magic and the atmosphere is bringing you to that period. There are a lot of very welled preserved little streets and small houses , very nice shops and activities to do with kids. You can get up to the castle by a open wagon and... More

Rasnov is a wonderful hilltop fortress providing spectacular views of the Transylvanian forest beyond. It is 30 minute drive west of Brasov, entry is 10 lei. Make sure you get your driver to drive up the hill or you will be in for a long walk. The fortress was built in the 13th C as a refuge for the local... More

The citadel is well represented, the sight and view is beautifull, you can see the entire city of Rasnov from the top. You can very easily see the RASNOV sign on the citadell wall from the road, and the acces is really easy. The disapointing thing is that you can't actually see anything besides the view and the citadell's walls... More

It was a nice visir, youcan imagine how the live was there centuries ago and the views are great. The only problem is that the state of the fortress is an absolute ruin. It should be better restored to make this a must-visit place in Transilvania.

The Citadel is where you see the sign on the hill. Make your way to the car park beneath the Citadel and take the tractor train up the hill. Once inside, it is difficult to appreciate that you are in the Citadel rather than just the castle. Walk around and enjoy the views. Snacks, ice creams, gifts back at the... More

Rasnov fort is situated in small town Rasnov between Brasov and Bran. It is about 15 miles from Brasov. I had no idea about it as i planned to visit it because it was in the way, but a surprise was waiting for us. It is a place you would be really looking for. Car parking is available at the... More
