There is an interesting place, in good shape, with a lot of things to see (it took 2 hours) and nice people. For the moment is not completly restaurated, but I didn't regret my time and I want to return one day to see all.

Fagaras fortress is well preserved and good to visit for tourist. I payed 15 lei/pers and I received a map for museum and fortress. If your in this part of Romania, than go to this beautiful fortress!
