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

Come here for a breathtaking view of the carpathians and a look at an impressive but somewhat derelict castle. This has only been open to the public for 5 years or so and really could be so much more. There are traders and people in costume inside which is a great sign but the archery by the gates? Passed right... More

We have visited this castle during our last trip to Transylvania.We didn't really know what to expect when we went to the town, it's a pretty average town, nothing special. It was quite a car journey to actually get up the hill where the castle car park is located. A nice surprise was that the car park at the bottom... More

We visited this place with a group and had a guide. First it is true that it is a good walk up a hill, but it was not difficult for me (could be for others). The advantage of walking is that it is quieter than the train and you can admire the beautiful forests on either side and can stop... More

A good place to spend several hours. Do not miss the private museum of Gheorghe Samoila (very close to the fountain, in the left)!!!

We visited on a gloomy rainy day, so this may have impacted on our experience, but overall the castle was dull. Really the inside buildings have been turned into tourist shops and photo booths with costumed actors. So all you're doing is paying to walk around some castle ruins and rebuilds that are trying to get more money out of... More
