This is Brasov!

Brasov is part of the Transylvania region and located in the central part of Romania, about 160 km from Bucharest. The Brasov region is surrounded by the Carpathians that offer a birds-eye view of the nearby flat-lands.

Brasov is one of the largest cities in Romania with approximatively 300.000 inhabitants. Brasov city is split into two parts:

  • The pretty Saxon old town and its square situated beneath Mount Tampa and then the surrounding concrete jungles of tower blocks and factories.
  • The old town is one of the best preserved old towns in Europe with splendid architecture and old fortifications and is well worth taking a few days to explore.The city has an amazing history with influences from Germany, the Austria-Hungarian Empire and the old communist state.
