Photographer's Note

Half an hour from Brasov is Rasnov, where a ruined castle crowns the hill that overlooks the town. Founded in the early 13th century by the Teutonic Knights and taken over by villagers in the 14th century when they needed a place of refuge from the Tartar and later Turkish invaders. The fortress remained functional until 1850 when it was abandoned and fell into ruin. Since its foundation, it was rebuilt several times and remains impressive.

Now the fortress it's a tourist atraction.
In this place i think was filmed scenes of the movie "Cold Mountain" with Nicole Kidman.
