The castle in Rasnov is so fantastic it deserves several tips of its own, but I shall limit myself to just one.

The castle was built upon the hill in the 13th century by Teutonic knights, and when you see its commanding position it will be no surprise that it was only conquered once in all those eight centuries. It's an incredible complex, which looks like it was still a functional castle just years ago, and the views are simply unforgettable. Whether you are looking out over the plains that feed Rasnov, or the forested hills and valleys behind that protect it, you are guaranteed to lose your breath, and take dozens of stunning photos that will amaze your friends.

Don't read my tip. Look at the pictures. Go there!

Directions: From the main square (Piata Unirii), walk through the arched passageway into the back of the Hotel La Cetatea Rasnovului. From their climb the steps to the top of the hill. It's not quite as bad as it looks.
