Rasnov From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. (Redirected from Rasnov) Jump to: navigation, search Rasnov (German: Rosenau; Hungarian: Barcarozsnyˇ) is a town in Brasov County, Romania with a population of 16,242.

It is located at about 15 km from the city of Brasov and about the same distance from Bran, on the road that linked Wallachia and Transylvania.

In RÔsnov a citadel was built around the year 1215 by the Teutonic Knights and it was mentioned for the first time in 1331.
The citadel was conquered only once in its history, around the year 1600 by Gabriel Bßthory.

After the day Hui Chin and I spent nearly a day reporting the theft of two of our cameras and my vallet at one of the Brasov Police Station during our trip around Romania in 2005, we hired a Taxi (A safer mode of transport around here), to visit Rasnov and Bran Castles.

Unfortunately it was raining on and off most of the day, so I couldn't photograph everything that I was hoping to.

Rasnov Castle or Fortress is an interesting tourist site.
