INTERVAL NATURAL

The second of our 4 Interval event concepts, Natural, is taking place in a unique location that implies instructions.

The venue is ready to host up to 1000 people. You will be able to use the entire courtyard while the old town within the citadel will stay off-limits during the night.

All of last year’s ticket holders for Interval 100 will be automatically emailed a discount code. See you at the party!

Some old-fashioned things like sunshine, fresh air and a Boiler Room session in a medieval Transylvanian fortress are hard to beat. Two full nights of music inside the citadel’s courtyard will help you have your senses put in order.

Big trees grow from good seeds so we have a number of surprises in store in and around the citadel that will stay in Rasnov forever. This is the third most visited historical monument in Romania and we’re the first ones to ever use it from dusk till dawn since it was last inhabited.’

THE CITADEL

Rasnov Citadel (Romanian: Cetatea Rasnov, German: Rosenauer Burg) is a historic monument and landmark in Romania. It is situated in Rasnov, Brasov County, in the immediate vicinity of Brasov. The medieval citadel of today is considered to be built between 1211 and 1225, during the rule of Teutonic Knights.

The citadel was built as part of a defence 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 Rasnov, 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 Rasnov and the nearby villages turned the fortification into a dwelling.

Kayaking In Romania

Romania is a beautiful European country  that many associate with Transylvania and medieval towns. It is an area that is green rolling hills, surrounded by mountains and plenty to see and explore.

If you are unsure, perhaps it is time for you to discover the best places for kayaking in Romania.

Relaxing Adventures

There are not many  large rivers in Romania. Therefore, you will most likely want to look harder at the rivers. One popular area for casual kayaking is the Mures River. It gives you a true glimpse of the natural scenery that makes this area most special. Other rivers include the Aries, Bistrita, and Nera rivers. Either of these areas will give you a chance to see Romania as it was meant to be seen; wild and untouched. The Danube Delta is also a popular choice and perhaps more well-known than some of the others.

Adventure Trips

Most all rivers in Romania get their start within the mountains and most all rivers can become a little more adventurous to kayak on when the snows are melting in the mountains. With this type of kayaking you will want to make sure you are using the proper type of kayak. You certainly don’t want a kayak made with the diy epoxy resin type, you’ll want a rugged kayak capable of handling whitewater. This means the months of April and June are ideal. The Buzau and Jiu are the most popular choices for the people who seek big adventuress. During the thaw they can challenge most all experienced kayakers, but they can be enjoyable during all other months of the year as well thanks to their abundant beauty.

Beach-side Fun

When looking at Kayak Places you may want to visit, you also need to consider the Romanian Coast. It is where you can see blue waters all around you and take your adventure to a whole new level with snorkeling, fishing, or any number of other adventures. It may not be as exciting as rapids, but there will be enough natural beauty to appeal to all nature lovers who want to see how great life in the slower kayaking lane can be.
