Lake Saint Ana
The volcanic lake Saint Ana was formed in the Ciomatu massif and is one of the most gorgeous jewel of Romania’s tourist attraction. For nature lovers, this breathtaking place represents a real aesthetic pleasure. The lake is surrounded by beech, pine and since 2018 swimming has been forbidden due to environmental protection. This spectacular view is featured with another miracle of nature: Tinovul Mohos, placed also in a crater and surrounded by small lakes that are not covered yet by peat, which can be visited only with a tourist guide.
Bears are loyal visitors of the area and those who are brave enough, can befriend them through a help of a guide.

Râșnov Citadel is a historic monument and landmark in Romania. It is situated in Râșnov, Brașov County, in the immediate vicinity of Brașov.
The citadel was built as part of a defense system for the Transylvanian villages exposed to outside invasions. A decisive aspect for building the citadel on the actual location was the route of the invading armies which were coming from the Bran pass and were passing through Râșnov, on their way to Burzenland. The only chance of survival for the inhabitants of the area, inclusively from Cristian and Ghimbav, was the refuge inside the citadel. Compelled to stay there for decades, the people of Râșnov and the nearby villages turned the fortification into a dwelling.
