This fortress was built by a group of knights from the Teutonic Order. It is also called the fortress of fear because lots of ghost hunters come here. The legend says that during a siege, the inhabitants of the Rasnov citadel made two Turkish prisoners...More

This has the potential to be an interesting, historical spot, but fails to come up to expectation. The first thing I noticed was that the "information centre", opened in about 2015, appeared to be permanently closed. The citadel is currently undergoing an EU funded "restoration",...More

As beautiful from the top as from the town looking up. This place has a long history. If only the walls could talk, they would tell great stories of battles won and battles lost and their way of life. It is simple in its ruins...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.
