When you are getting in from Sinaia side you can realize Risnov is a very poor city, what is a little bit strange because it's located between Brasov and Bran in Transylvania which isn't the poorest region in Romania.
I can still remember a tennis court for posh Risnov citizens… unfortunately I didn't take a photo to show you how posh it was…
The main attraction in Risnov is its castle located at the top of the mountain.
We had problems to find it cause of the deficient signs and the bad road but, finally, we found it!! We were disappointed because as every Monday it was closed though we found a freaky man who allowed us to take a few photos from the castle.
The castle is an old fortification with the typical protection walls and a privileged view of Risnov plain and Transylvanian mountains.
