Fascinating history with old centre having buildings dating back 600 years. Influence of Romanians, Hungarians and especially Germans makes Brasov really interesting for those who like history

coz the winter can b really cold, I prefer the bars and pubs on Republicii street. Taxis are very cheap in Brasov, probably the cheapest in the whole country, it shouldn't cost you more than 3 euros wherever you go within the city limits from the railway station.

Braşov has a very special romantic charm that permeates the whole old city. The walls, coloured houses of various styles and warm atmosphere make the city superb both in summer and winter. The summer is full of life and the winter has a buzz with Christmas festivities and great food.

Tourists can easily reach Tampa, a hill right in the centre of the city and enjoy a spectacular view from the top. Brasov is right at the foot of the Carpathians and travellers can enjoy numerous nature routes and mountain resorts nearby.

I was able to see only Citadel and Black Church, i strictly recommend to visit all these places to all visitors. There should be more to see both in Brasov and around, it is not a city for a night :)

The forests are beautiful and full of colourful flowers in the summer. Take care to avoid ticks. The views of the city from the forested mountain are spectacular.

Is there more to shopping in Braşov than just brand-name stores?

Mark
Mark, United Kingdom

28 days ago Report

Yes, try not to go shopping in the main streets of Brasov, because they are mainly focussed on tourism. If you don't care about brands, but want some good jeans or lovely dresses for a very, very decent price (3 to 4 times cheaper then UK prices), ask the locals where you can find a shopping centre outside of the centre of the city. Most younger people speak english.
