WOW!!! Very impressed with this place. We didn't know about this place at all, the Lady in Brasov tourist information said to go, that it was a must see after Bran Castle, she wasn't wrong! This is one of the most Memorable places in Romania that I saw. Spectacular views, bargain up the cable car and so cheap to get... More

This site is really beautiful once you get past the gaudy Hollywood style sign that spoils the view from the bottom of the mountain. Once you get to the foot of the hills it really hits you. It was snowy and empty when my friends and I went, so it felt very special and gave it a more majestic feeling.... More

The view from the very top of the fortress is spectacular. The wind is also strong so be careful. It's definitely worth a look if you're a castle nut and even if not.

Very pleasant place to discover. As a Prague inhabitant, I tend to be hard to amuse by a castle. This one enchanted me completely. Inside, there is not much to see, but what you see is well preserved. And the view from the top of the castle was marvelous. We visited the place on November afternoon, thus we saw green... More

One of the last inhabited burgs of Europe, very well preserved and with a wonderful atmosphere, as many great historical Romanian movies have been realized here. A must to visit. An advice: try to meet Mr. Samo when being here: he's 70 and is known as guardian of the castle and he uses to say a lot of wonderful stories... More

Rasnov citadel was a pleasant discovery during our holiday, we choose for the long walk and it was well worth it once we reached the fortress which is definitely amazing.

It's an OK fortress if you've never been to one. There are no dispays, though, and instead too many gift shops selling cheesy souvenirs. No, not cheese. Little toys, magnets, touristy items....The view from above is not spectacular and the big green audio guide number signs posted throughout the fortress ruin your photo ops. There are enough gift shops at... More
