R is for Rasnov

Rasnov is a ruined fortress in Transylvania, Romania. It was founded by the Teutonic Knights around 1225. It sits on a hilltop covered in fir trees, overlooking the town of the same name. It is in a stunning location – you get great over the town in one direction, and in another you get marvellous views of the Carpathian mountains.



  1. Love that castle, and its perfect location. Maybe they could move that Hollywood-style name though. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I loved Rasnov! I went a few summers ago and found it so cool!

  3. You make Romania look like the next destination – and it’s close.

  4. A castle in most beautiful natural surroundings! Great photos, Sue!

  5. Wonderful backdrop, isn’t it, Sue? I spied some benches that would make a great place for a snack with a view. 🙂 🙂

  6. And for a ruin, Sue, it looks in very good condition! I think I like this place.

  7. Looks amazing! Love the second photo. You and Jo have something in common, you both love heights!

  8. Gorgeous place but I’m with you and Pete about the name. 🙂


  9. We got to Transylvania, but missed this lovely structure. Hmm. We may need a return trip!

  10. What an astonishing castle. And beautiful images, Sue.

  11. Another beautiful place in Romania, Sue. I love the name Transylvania. 🙂

  12. Lovely shots, Sue! A place I have never heard of – you have really explored Europe thoroughly!
