  • Fagaras fortress is well preserved and good to visit for tourist. I payed 15 lei/pers and I received a map for museum and fortress. If your in this part of Romania, than go to this beautiful fortress!  more »
  • Very beautiful both day and night. We have seen it in winter with frozen moat and is well worth a visit

  • Stunning fortress surrounded by moat (with swans). Photogenic - particularly with the golden domes of the church beside it. Lots to explore. The museum inside is beautifully restored and well presented, but lacks star exhibits. Info in English is patchy - no translation of the text about its communist era use as a prison for political detainees. Don't miss the impressive throne room. If you want to help save the planet, keep your unnecessary plastic overshoes after the museum - they give you another set upstairs!
  • One of the best fortresses to visit in Romania. Don't let the modest exterior fool you. For the small entrance fee you get to see one of the richest museums. Well worth the time and money, and an absolute must see if you are in the area.
  • Very well maintained citadel. Inside and outside, all looks wonderfully handcrafted. Best I have ever visited in Romania.
  • The only medieval citadel in Europe that still preserves its water-filled defense chanel, but it's a swans' paradise now :) Impressive history of this unconquerable fortress, where the Transylvanian princesses were kept safe. Very well preserved. Interesting museum.
  • Lovely place! Nice architecture and full of history! This place can take you back with a few hundreds and of years!
