Great history to it, one of the better castles I have been too, great views cool stuff to see and buy. Our tour guide was amazing and gave us so much background on the castle and the surrounding areas.

We visited the citadel this summer after spending an hour in the DinoPark nearby. I recommend both. The scenery is just fabulous. The whole place feels like a fairy tale.

If you take the tractor pulled train, the first stop is Dino parc, or you can stay on and get dropped off at this castle further up. At the castle, there's a lot of walking and also not suitable for a stroller as the ground is made up of little rocks and uneven walkways. Bring a carrier for a baby.... More

Very disappointing to return to Rasnov after 5 years and find most of the citadel closed because they opened stores in the stone homes inside the fortress. There is no more history to read, no more little homes to visit or artifacts to see just junk to buy.

I like the citadel, it looks great above the city. We got there using tractor train, since we were very tired already, and it was too hot outside. There is not much inside, a lot of buildings were ruined. But the view of town is very beautiful.

Beautiful citadel, nice view. It's better to visit in during spring/summer, so you would also find the shops open.

It's fun, not expensive to get it, the road is amazing with a tractor train and there are fun things to do. Th fortress is really great and now they build a glass elevator from the bottom to go up to it.

The good thing about Rasnov is that you have 2 interesting points of interest nearby - the citadel and the cave (there's also Dino Park there these days). And both are worth visiting. The citadel is nice, with the walls and everything... some ruins are also seen. And if you go to the top, then a breathtaking view of the... More

Take the hike until the top, it's really nice all around. The citadel itself is a bit degraded, but still worth the trip for the amazing view.
