Amazing view, is it like a small village very well maintained from a few hundreds of years ago, I really enjoyed it and it is fascinating to see it exactly how it was before and how they lived

Interesting citadel with fabulous views of Brasov. Interesting buildings and was fairly quiet when we visited so quite a chilled out place. Try the axe throwing as it’s good fun!

I would get in touch with the citadel direct via the website. Personally I would thank him by signing his virtues on the best travel website TripAdvisor.
