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

The views from the fortress are breathtaking, huge vistas of farmland, forest and mountains. The fortress itself is excellent, not over developed so it has a sense of age but looks well cared for. Unfortuately when we visited everything was closed, the little tractor train was broken (so we were allowed to drive up the hill) and the museum was... More

Nice views, really some history behind the place. Pay attention to the legend of the well, also it is fun to throw axes and train with a bow. The famous gentleman, alpinist and local legend is also waiting for you there. At the top you will find a perfect spot to make a picture with the flag of Romania. If... More

A very nice citadel, especially after renovation. The strategic position offers a spectacular view over the Rasnov and surroundings. The citadel is easy reachable and it provides a nice view also in the night.

This citadel is perched right on top of a rocky outcrop, there is a path up to the top or you can take a tractor train ride for a small fee. The fortifications have been well restored and the appearance is really impressive. There are a few info signs in english but not enough. There were a couple souvenir shops... More

You have two options to reach to the fortress: on foot or by 'little train' towed by a tractor. Once I arrived on the citadel, I was pleasantly surprised by interior arrangement and by the activity of actors present on alleys. On the hill of the fortress you'll have a great views of the Carpathians Mountain and of the Rasnov... More
