Our 2012 RoTrip ended with Râșnov – a small town in the mountains, close to Brașov. The connection between Brașov and Râșnov was quite good at that time, private trains had a hourly schedule from the main station. The reason we’ve added it on our list was due to the fortress from the top of the hill in the area.

If you don’t want to go by foot to the fortress a train is waiting for you at the base of the hill: a tractor is the locomotive and small benches are arranged behind it. The fortress isn’t that big, but it is worth a visit if you are in the area. Beautiful images around it pass before your eyes, since it is situated in between mountains. You may find there places to eat or drink or some benches for you to enjoy your own food. From the fortress area, following the road to Brașov into the woods, you will get to a cave known for the concerts hold there. The cave has a big round room which makes the sound to be more pleasant. We’ve never attended a concert there, but I suppose is something amazing, especially if you like classical music.
