Fortress / Rasnov Castle 😍😍🇷🇴
(14 July 2023)
About 20 km from Brasov (German Kronstadt), on the way to Bran, lies Rașnov (German Rosenau).
A small town with about 15,000 inhabitants, a fortress and a dinosaur park. In the 14th century the fortress was built above the town on the limestone cliffs, and in 1623 and 1640 it was extended by a well 80 fathoms deep (a historical German measure of length, 80 fathoms are about 140 metres).
The Rasnov Dinopark is located right next to the fortress. So nothing stands in the way of a nice family outing.

Our tip: Harman | Honigberg | Brasov County 😍😍🇷🇴
(4 July 2023 / Images: July 2023)
Honigberg (in Saxon Huntschprich, in Hungarian Szaszhermany) is a commune and place, one of the most famous fortified churches, in Brasov County in the Transylvania region.
This fortified church is a completely preserved small fortress with the church at its centre. Besides an interesting museum, you can also visit the battlements, the tower and the church. You must have seen it and it is also for families with children, because of the many corridors, stairs and more … an exciting and wonderful experience 🥰
About the place: In 1211, the Hungarian King Andrew II granted the Burzenland to the Teutonic Knights, who settled here, built castles, brought German settlers into the country and founded villages, including Honigberg.
The first documentary mention was in 1240 under Mons Mellis (“mountain of honey”). At that time, King Bela IV granted the Cistercian Order patronage over the churches of Marienburg, Petersberg, Honigberg and Tartlau.
