BRASOV, Romania 🇷🇴

The Gateway to Transylvania

We are in Brașov, Romania (also known as Kronstadt in German and Brassó in Hungarian). It’s the 7th largest city of the country with around 280,000 inhabitants.

Brasov is centrally located in the Transylvania region at the foot of Mount Tâmpa, around 175km from Bucharest but here we get mountain views and medieval Saxon-influenced architecture.

Starting at the central Piata Sfatului, notable landmarks include the Black Church (Biserica Neagra) and the remarkably narrow “String Street” (Strada Sforii), originally designed for firefighter access. The tour continues all around town with a scenic view from the Black Tower (Turnul Negru), a historic watchtower before returning to the old town center.

On this tour we’ll get a good view of Brasov which is a set against the backdrop of the Carpathian Mountains.
