# about Rasnov and Bran

Rasnov is situated in the middle of the country, in the upper part of Barsa Country, at the base of Postavaru Massif, quite close to Bucegi Mountains and Piatra Craiului Mountains. Even if many centuries passed over Rasnov, the city keeps the charming atmosphere of prosperity.

The Teutonic Order began construction of a wooden fort, (the first Castle) in the early 13th century. After the fort’s destruction in 1242 by Mongols, King Sigismund of Hungary ordered the construction of a stone castle in 1377, while the settlement of Bran began to develop nearby. Positioned high atop a steep cliff, the castle guarded a strategic trade route between Transylvania and Wallachia.
