We took the funicular to the Citadel and loved the views. An interesting visit but I was horrified by the lack of secure walkways. There is loose rubble underfoot and it took some effort to keep my footing. Make sure you wear sturdy footwear. This...More

The Citadel is on top of a hill. There are two ways to get there. There is an underground parking in the center of Rasnov (the cobbled area). From there you can take the cable car (funicular) up the hill. This is the more expensive...More

There is very little of the castle left and that little is populated by shops. The views are fine, but they are nicer from the various mountains in the area. We would rather skip the place and spend those couple of hours elsewhere.

The walk up to the citadel from the base of the hill (with free parking) is surprisingly easy and short (took maybe 10-15 minutes). The citadel itself has some great views and is cool to explore. It was a little busy, but not overcrowded like...More

The fortress is beautiful, not very well maintained ... it can see garbage areas. Surrounding are cheap and low-quality souvenir stalls. The view above is spectacular, so it's worth to visiting.

It's worth a visit for the great views of the surrounding area. The citadel itself is nothing spectacular. There were lots of stalls selling souvenirs. You can pay to get driven up the hill from the car park if you don't fancy the walk.

If, like myself, you are making the drive from Brasov down to Bran to see Drac's castle, then you must allow yourself an hour to visit the Rasnov Citadel. You can't miss it as there is a huge sign (aka Hollywood) to direct your attention...More

The Citadel is really nice, but unfortunately the inside not well preserved (I am afraid this is all over Romania as they don't have (yet) enough money to renew all the old beautiful buildings). The view is great and we was very luck with the...More

This was part of our Bran Castle day tour. Rasnov now has a Hollywood-style sign on the mountain-side which supposedly has greatly increased the number of visitors. You can get up to the citadel either on foot, via tractor pull, or via the lift. Lift...More
