Photographer's Note

These wooden cut outs are becoming increasingly popular in various countries. A bit kitschy / tacky for my taste but each to their own. The 2 faces at right have moveable panels for that 'must have' trio shot! Here we see mock Roman centurions standing in front of Rasnov Fortress. Few people actually stop in Rasnov, which is a pity, as the Fortress is well worth a look and even has a toy train from the carpark to the castle gate. Rasnov is about 1/2 way between more heavily touristed city of Brasov, and Bran, the site of the tourist castle of Dracula.

Rasnov Fort guards the entry and exit point to the Carpathian Mountain pass just to the south, near Bran.
