Trip Planner: Europe / Romania / Transylvania / Central Romania / Brasov County / Rasnov / Rasnov Citadel
Rasnov Citadel, also known as the "fortress of fear," attracts ghost hunters because of its infamous well and the recent discoveries of human bones in the castle's basement. A group of knights from the Teutonic Order built the intimidating fortress, which later served as a refuge for peasants during foreign invasions in 1215. Learn the legend of the well built by two Turkish prisoners who were promised their freedom upon completing the task and then were betrayed. A feudal museum exhibits old weaponry, tools, stamps, and traditional dress. Look for a skeleton buried underneath a glass floor. You can also try archery at the castle, or rest in one of several cafes and restaurants. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Rasnov holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Rasnov Citadel and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

מקום מאוד יפה עם נוף מרהיב. סמטאות עתיקות עם חנויות מזכרות. אנחנו אהבנו את הטירה יותר מטירת בראן. למטה יש דוכני אוכל מאוד טעימים more »Very nice place with spectacular views. Ancient alleys with souvenir shops. We loved the castle more than Bran Castle. There are very tasty food stalls downstairs.
