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

The citadel was constructed by the peasants to protect them from the Turks/Ottoman Empire as they were not allowed to enter royal palace. Magnificent views abound in all directions. Plenty of history to learn especially about the 160+ meter deep well. Many of the restored rooms are souvenir shops.

I have visited Rasnov Citadel for about 3-4 times now and, each time, I rediscover it in a totally different light. I love its old walls that were shaken by the passage of centuries until just a few bricks were left. Still, the rooms, houses and courts continue to preserve their robustness, and are an obvious proof that no matter... More

I was impressed with the citadel. A tractor takes you up to the lower gate of the citadel. There is another climb up. For an older person like myself it caused a bit of huffing and puffing. The ruins are interesting and it gave me respect for the sturdy construction that was accomplished in those days. The medieval city with... More
