Looks absolutely amazing - everything a castle should be and more!

This is worth seeing from any and every angle and you can only imagine how many armies tried to get in and failed over the centuries. The location on the mount is everything you... read more

After a 1km uphill walk, you are greeted by this stunning and imposing citadel. For those who aren't up for the walk, there is a small tractor hauled bus that can take you up and down. We chose to walk in order to enjoy the stunning scenery on the way up. We didn't actually go into the citadel as we... More

Went here on "The Dracula Tour" and were very impressed. Our guide Manuella explained the history and what life was like during sieges and made it so much more interesting than just walking through. Quite a view from the walls. Be nice to the cats!

This is worth seeing from any and every angle and you can only imagine how many armies tried to get in and failed over the centuries. The location on the mount is everything you expect and it commands such a view of the surrounding countryside.

Although mostly in ruins, this medieval fortress is magnificent. As you stroll the ruins and cobbled streets you can't help but be transported back in time. Set with a beautiful backdrop of towering, snow-capped mountains and overlooking a cute little town, this is a must-see in the region! It is also much less crowded than other castles, like Bran, so... More

One of just a few in the world: a fortification buit by peasant from the neighborhood for their security. The location is marvelous and the seeing over the old city of Rosenau(German name for Rasnov in Romanian). The road to the citadel goes near the Dino Park, kind of a Jurassic Park. The city plans promised a cabin from downtown... More

Perfect visit to Rasnov Citadel in a sunny winter day. From the base of the hill you can reach the citadel either by a 20-25 minutes of walking through a beautiful wood, or by a small open wagon train conducted by a tractor taking you up in 5-10 minutes. There is a Dinosaurs Park on the way, for the ones... More
