Visiting the citadel gives some absolutely stunning views of the mountains and nearby towns. Entrance is only 12 lei for adults or 6 lei for students, and access is fairly easy with an elevator from Rasnov (12 lei return). There is some interesting history to...More

An easy place to visit on the road from Brasov to Brân. You can drive part way up the hill and walk the rest, but we parked in the main town near the funicular, which is a fun way to get to the citadel. We...More

Great castle to explore, and for families with little or. not so little ones, the Dino Park can be added in as it’s situated right below the castle. There are many shops inside the castle walls, where the old fortified village used to be, selling...More

The fortress was able to withstand a 6 month siege and was never defeated. There are over 80 homes inside the citadel. Great view from the top. There is a tram from the parking lot

Great place to visit, I actually preferred this to Bran, it seemed a bit more authentic and was very quiet. We used the train to get up the hill. From the top you get great views, there is a cafe up there and some toilets

We lived in Romania from 2003 to 2010 and we visted Rasnov several times. We saw it go from an unattended ruin to the beginnings of a tasteful restoration. It is sad to see how it is now in worse condition than 8 years ago...More

One of the most popular attractions in Rasnov is this fortress. It is situated uphill which overlooks the entire city. With the help of bus transport, it is easy to visit this place. Just before going inside the citadel, I suggest to look around the...More

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.
