Great medieval sight (although reconstructed). Great guides also (ask for Adrian). It worth's to pay 3 RON to the bus to take you up.

I'm a bit subjective when it comes to rating castles because I love the whole medieval setting. I took over one hundred photos here (trying new things with my new camera that is). The escalator/lift you can see on the hill next to the Rasnov sign was not operating the day I went so I got lost. I ended up... More

Best if you can make it in mid-august, when Rockstadt Extreme Fest makes the whole town shiver. The citadel is an excellent place for concerts and it brings the necessary aura that makes you want to enjoy pure metal, along with a few beers. Rockstadt Extreme Fest 2015- Here We Come!

If you want to enjoy the great view of the carpathian mountains then you should "climb" there... Ps:take the "train" for the ascending...choose your feet for the descending..!

This castle was 'over-restored' by an Italian before the local authority stepped in - and it shows. Cement instead of lime mortar clearly shows in the curtain wall. Travelling with us was a Romanian speaker who could recall visiting many years ago as a child and it still had a magical effect for her. The costumed interpreters might or might... More

The citadel is really beautiful, it's worth a visit. We had fun climbing to the top and observing the panorama. There's lots of activities you can do, like axe throwing. We haven't tried any, but the people are dressed like knights and princesses, which gives the citadel a live feeling. I recommend :)

The Citadel is very nice and great preserved. It speaks about the history and culture of the people who lived here. In the fortress you can still find the old school or city hall; You can still enjoy the Roses Garden, the one that gave the name of this citadel. You can experience the defense gallery and you can have... More

If you enjoy the architecture of old fortresses the you should definitely go to see this one, it has a great history but you may need a guide or some kind of bought leaflet to tell you. Its in a nice setting and is a lovely walk, you can take the train coach up the hill if you want but... More
