Fortaleza Rasnov (Rasnov)
The Rasnov fortress or the ancient city of Rasnov, we arrived from 1211 e 1225, as part of the defense of the city and region, defending to the various invasions that have happened over the years. The Fortress was built so well in a place so well thought out that was only won once, in 1612, resisting several attempts of conquest.
Some researchers have found that the existence of fortifications on the hill of the citadel dating back to prehistoric and Dacian period, and that the current fortress is built on top of these other ruins. Although there is no evidence of this existence, They consider that the medieval citadel was built between 1211 e 1225, when Burzenland was under the rule of the Teutonic Knights. Almost a hundred years later, in 1335, during a Barbarian invasion, the only citadel that have not been conquered the Rasnov and Brasov.
No Ottoman period, in the year of 1421, the fortress was besieged again, but resisted. In 1600, Prince of Wallachia, Miguel, known as Valente, He went to the citadel with his wife and his troops after being defeated in a war nearby. The citadel / fort was conquered only once, as mentioned, during the reign of Prince Gabriel Báthory, in 1612, the cause of the fall was the lack of water because the enemies have found the secret path to a source of the river. In the following years between 1623 e 1642 a well has been excavated with 146 meters deep to solve the problem of lack of water inside the citadel. The fortress has suffered from fires and earthquakes that destroyed a large part of it.
In the years 1848 e 1849, Rasnov was again invaded by enemies and again the people went to the citadel to protect themselves from invasions, It is the last time the fortress was used as a refuge and defense site. After years of neglect the fortress was restored for the first time between 1955 e 1956, and there is even today being the main postcard of the city with the marquee Rasnov
