“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Quite a drive from Brasov (90 mins) but well worth it. is undergoing extensive renovation and they're obviously spending a lot of money to get it right, the museum is open as of July 2013. situated in the main citadel, the displays cover early history, military use, important guilds, and displays of local town life. The quality of the restoration is outstanding, some of the best I've seen anywhere. Hardly a soul around when we visited, so plenty of room and time to look around, lovelly to walk around the moat as well. When they've completed the restoration this will be a superb destination, in fact it already is.

Great fortress with an inside museum. There is an old hanging place and the fortress itself is very nice.

We just stumbled across this castle and were blown away by it. A must see!

The moat and trees lining the outside provide for some great picture taking opportunities. We weren't able to enter as we arrived 15 min after closing but we still came away blown away by it. Absolutely stunning!
