I'd give this a higher rating if I could go inside this citadel but, it appeared to be closed. Still, it's worth a walk around the outside as it not only offers view across the old part of the city but also to the north...More

The citadel is placed on a hill that provides you the chance to have a great view to the city center in Brasov. Unfortunately, the citadel is closed.

I grew up on the Citadel Hill (Cetatuia) and today one of my favorite running routes climbs the hill and circles the Citadel. The views from the top are great. One can see most of the city and the mountains around. The citadel had different...More

We went up for the view onto the old town, in daytime and in the evening. It's nice indeed. You can walk around the citadel but you cannot visit it because it is closed to the public. That's sad because the place seems promising.

I was so glad I'd visited The Citadel Of The Guard on Citadel Hill because during the walk up to this old strategic monument, I discovered some really interesting and beautiful houses of varying architectural styles on the way. Yes, it's quite a hike up...More

We took a short climb up to the Citadel. It's a hike but not a long one. However the Citadel was closed and we could not find anywhere when it would be open. Nice view though!

It is worth the climb to catch the views of the city. This is on the opposite side of old town with respect to the Brasov sign. You can look up into the valleys. I walked up via city streets and walk down via trails...More

I've just searched online for information on this on our local websites and I found out that the Citadel is closed until the end of 2015, due to massive degradation - it needs to be restored as stones from the walls are... More

You can get there either by foot or by car. By foot: from Iuliu Maniu Street, you go right across from the City Hall. There is a sign "Cetatuie" which leads to some stairs through the parc up to Mihai Eminescu Street... More
