The Rupea Citadel

The Rupea citadel is located in the heart of the historical region of Transylvania, Romania. Since it was built on a larger hill close to the city of Rupea, it is visible from every direction and you cannot miss it if you plan to visit it. There is even a larger parking lot next to entrance where you can leave your car while you are visiting this place.

After you enter into the citadel, then you should know that this medieval citadel is actually devided into three so called “fortresses”. The lower part where the entrance is into the fortress is called the Dawn Fortress, the middle part is called the Middle Fortress and lastly, the upper part of the Rupea fortress is called the Upper Fortress.

From the Upper Fortress the entire landscape which surrounds the Rupea fortress is visible, including the city which is right next to the fortress.

Not very far Rupea, you can will find the old medieval citadel of Sighișoara which is another important landmark in the historical region of Transylvania.
