Fantastic citadel with great view. The tickets are not expensive and we entered immediately. I didn't like that were shops with toys and souvenirs inside the castle.

After paying a small fee you can walk up the steep ground - sensible shoes needed here - and see the amazing views from the top. We had a go at throwing axes... More

I have been there twice, the views from there are spectacular and the Citadel itself. I wouldn't recommend taking the tractor it is a 10 min walk from the parking lot and up to the Citadel.

I definitely recommend visiting Râșnov citadel if you're visiting Brașov, it's very beautiful, chill. There's a trolley which picks you up for a few RON

The place is situated on the hill - you can drive by a car, use stairs or even a new lift:) Nice view of the area. The shops selling Chinese stuff inside the castle should be removed though.

Inside there are some souvenir shops and a small museum (privately owned/operated) but very interesting. The terrain is rough so wear flat comfortable shoes. Getting there, however, was cumbersome as we waited on line for a... More

We see most walled cities on our trip and this was a fun one. Don't miss the free museum inside or the information office outside with help in English.
