Impressive Castle in Transylvania region. Fortress can be reached by cable car from the village Râsnov, or from the other side on foot, or in the lining which is attached to a tractor. After entering the gate, there is a few minutes' walk until reaching the fortress. Within the fort houses partially restored, there are workshops, shops selling souvenirs, and... More

Do not try to walk to the citadel unles you are very fit, it is a good distance up hill and with the tractor/trailer costing only a few lei I would save your legs for the citadel tour. Very atmospheric castle with superb views over the town and surrounding forests and mountains. There are some tourist shops for souvenirs but... More

Interesting place full of history - with a lot of things to see and photo. There are a little shops for souvenirs and to buy a little something for remembrance. The transport to this place is interesting - tractor with trailers

Perhaps the best view of Rasnov Citadel is when walking through the main gate. It was nice to walk around, though there were quite a few souvenir shops spread around. The view from the highest point was pretty exceptional with view down on the town of Rasnov, the surrounding countryside, and the mountains behind. There was unfortunately very little information...

Simply an AMAZING place!!! I've traveled all through Romania and this was my favorite visit. I have been to castles and fortresses all over Europe (to include the walls of Constantinople) and this is by far one of the best sights I have seen. It's unique to any other fortress Ive seen and an excellent example of a Romanian citadel!... More

Rasnov fortress doesn't have the dark turrets of Bran or the disney castle qualities of Peles but is still very impressive. A lot of the walls and towers are still intact and it is a very impressive place to visit.

Went here as part of my tour! It is a little steep climbing up! Once inside it was pretty boring and people selling things. The only good thing I can say about is there is a nice view there, other than that i wouldn't bother going!

The castle is great, but nothing to see in it, except for a bunch of souvenir shops. The best thing everyone raves about is the views. I think that tells enough about the castle itself. Great views disappointing castle

Nice little stop off for us after visiting Bran castle enroute to Brasov. The city was deserted but we managed to walk to the lift which took us up to the Citadel. It's worth a wander around to get a feel for medieval times. A few steps away is the Dino Park which is so bad it's good so all... More
