Rasnov Citadel

     Construita in secolulul al XIV-lea in Tara Barsei, cel mai probabil in vremea cavalerilor teutoni, Cetatea fortificata Rasnov  este cel de al doilea edificiu important de la poarta Transilvaniei si mai aproape de Bucuresti.

     Fortificatia este spectaculoasa atat prin pozitionarea sa semeata, oferind o panorama de senzationala asupra imprejurimilor, dar mai ales prin detaliile pe care le aduce asupra  vechilor locuitorilor sasi din  incinta Cetatii.

     Cetatea are doua randuri de curti, una interioara  si alta exterior.

     Daca in cadrul curtii interioare se deduce organizare sateasca veche,  regasindu-se inca unele incaperi cu numele a  preotului,  a invatatorului; curtea exteriora, gazduia animalele, vitele, ca o dovada a ocupatiilor agricole ale localnicilor.

     Cetatea Rasnov a devenit cunoscuta ca urmare a filmarilor din Cold Mountain.

Bran Castle

     Asociat mai degraba mitului Dracula ca urmare a romanului  omonin, al autorului  Bram Stoker,  istoricul asezamantului  Bran  (poarta in limba turca) incepe din vremea cavalerilor teutoni, in secolul al XXIII-lea, ca o simpla fortareata. Abia un secol mai tarziu, localnicii Brasovului primesc dreptul de a construi un castel care a fost finalizat in 1388.

     Dupa o istorie zbuciumata si trecerea Castelului Bran prin mai multi proprietari, pentru o scurta perioada si in posesia lui Mircea Cel Batran, acesta ajunge in 1920 in proprietatea Reginei Maria, iar aspect actual si amenajarile interioare sunt povestea vietii Reginei care, de altfel,  s-a ocupat de restaurarea si decorarea acestui castel.
