The Citadel Fortress of Brasov, night landscape

The citadel was turned into a restaurant called Cetate. If you visit the restaurant remember to take a tour and admire the collection of Medieval weapons hanged on the walls and to drop a penny in the well (81 m deep) for good luck. In the center of the Citadel is a narrow courtyard displaying shields, lances, a canon and coat of arms.

The Fortress or the Citadel is called in Romanian ‘Cetate’ (pronounced ‘chetatay’), the name one should use if want to ask the locals for information about it. Most Romanians don’t know the English name(s) of the place. It is not difficult to be found, as it is at the top of the hill across from the Central Park.
