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

The castle is well preserved and the view is stunning. You can climb to the top of all the towers and enter the houses. The castle feels a bit empty, would suggest adding some furnitures to the building and display some paintings, armor and such...More

Beautiful, breathtaking, amazing view! Visit it during the summer, it's really worth it if you are the type of person who loves visiting castles, ruins, or fortresses.

Massive castle stands alone atop a hill in the middle of the countryside.  Worth the 10 lei entrance fee for the view over the foothills, which are covered in fields as far as the eye can see.  Stop on the way to Sighişoara to break...More

This castle is really nice from the outside but i dont understand the other comments because there is really nothing inside. You pay 10lei the entrance to see only empty room but nothing more no exposition and poor explanations

We were looking for a place to take a break on our journey back home into a Saturday afternoon. We've seen the fortress for 25 years from the road, but never visited it and we thought is a good moment for this. The place is...More
