Brasov is one of those magical places that makes you feel at ease as soon as you enter it.
Surrounded by lush green mountains Brasov is situated in an idyllic location and as a consequence it has played host to many kings and conquerors over the years! Today Brasov’s identity from a tourist perspective is closely linked to Vlad Tepes and Brasov acts as a superb base for visitors to explore Draculas Transylvania. However Brasov is so much more than a Dracula holiday base. It is a city break destination in its own right.
The old town offers a relaxed pace to life and from spring to early autumn you can enjoy al fresco dining in the main square. Brasov as well as being surrounded by nature, is also decorated with lovely parks, making it a joy to explore and while away sunny afternoons people watching and relaxing.
It also offers some fascinating museums and impressive sightseeing opportunities; most notably of all is Brasov’s Black Church; named so after a severe fire turning many of its walls and gargoyles pitch black.
From Brasov you can easily explore other amazing parts of Transylvania including the walled city of Sibiu (and birth place of Vlad Tepes), Bran castle (best known for its part in Bran Stokers Dracula) and the fortified town of Rasnov. In Winter you can also stay in Brasov and go skiing in Poiana Brasov ski resort. It is all possible.
