"Rasnov" Rasnov by IreneMcKay

Rasnov Travel Guide: 41 reviews and 162 photos


If you travel by bus from Brasov to Bran Castle you will pass through the town of Rasnov. It has a beautiful ruined fortress perched on a hill top high above it. Bran and Rasnov can be visited on the same day.


The fortress was built around 1225 by Teutonic knights. It is now partially ruined.

The town

The town of Rasnov also has a large church and some pleasant restaurants and cafes. There is a camp site there and caves nearby but we did not visit them.

    Another lovely little page of your adevntures in Romania. We also spent a few hours in Rasnov on the way back from Bran to Brasov. I must admit that I liked Rasnov even more than Bran as it is much more an authentic city and less touristy than Bran.
