If you are on this road, this place is worth a visit. The views are beautiful but the place itself is full of empty rooms. The parking is great, and there is a public toilet before you enter the site.

This place is a must for history buffs and LORD OF THE RINGS fans. Often by-passed by travellers even though many tours make at least a quick stopover here. Reviews give the impression that it is only reachable by car. We didn't have a car...More

We stopped off in Rupea en route to Sighisoara from Brasov. The citadel is quite the sight to see on approach, impressively towering over the village. Even if we had not planned to stop, it would have been impossible to drive past without making the...More
