10 Things to Do in Brasov That You Shouldn't Miss

December 1, 2017 Lean Nau

Smack in the center of Romania is Brasov, a harmonious mash-up of traditional charm and modern city life. Ride a double-decker bus around the city to get your bearings and see the sites whiz by, then hop off to squeeze down Strada Sforii, the narrowest street in Europe. Take a day trip to see the fortified church of Prejmer, the Libearty brown bear sanctuary, and the deliciously ominous Bran Castle, otherwise known as Dracula’s Castle.

Council Square

Reviewed By donna_goodwin - Nottingham

Really lovely focal point of the Old Town - lovely place to sit (even in winter) outside with a warm drink and watch the snowflakes settle. See the Mountains in the background and take in the beautiful scenery. Lovely restaurants in the area and minutes away from key attractions like the black church, Catherine's Gate etc

Prima Scoala Romaneasca

Reviewed By Charlieboy55 - Dublin

This First Romanian School Museum is located in the grounds of the Saint Nicholas (Sf. Nicolae) Romanian Orthodox Church. If you take the guided tour, an eldery and very scholarly man (actually an Orthodox priest) will explain everything to you through an interpreter. If your country of origin is mentioned in the school's geography book, he will read the relevant section to you while you are seated at the pupils' desks. The man has a keen sense of humour and is very friendly. The school houses a large and important collection of antique books and manuscripts, some of which are on display in glass cases. Highly recommended.

Mount Tampa

Reviewed By phlaviann

Best place in town for locals and also for the travellers. The main advantage is the close location to the town and the nature that surrounds it.
This is what makes Mount Tampa one of the favorite locations for a short walk in nature, there were months when we used to do it daily.

Sf. Nicolae Church (Saint Nicholas)

Reviewed By Gabriela C - Bucharest, Romania

Saint Nicholas Church is an orthodox church that seems to had undergone lots of changes and modifications over the time. You can see from the outside architecture that it has gothic and bizantine influences.
It is a church with great history and I would liked to hear more about it. Unfortunately, when I have entered I did saw the no photos sign and when I tried to do a photo (without flash, normally) an old woman that was in charge with selling the candles was very rude to me. Afterwards, I saw on tripadvisor that a similar situation occured to someone else. That is a pity, because we were in a holy place and forgiveness should be present.
Bottom line: I would like to visit again but with a specialized guide that would provide more information about the paintings, history, architecture and so on.

Yekaterina's Gate

Reviewed By majeo - Miami, Florida

Brasov used to be a city surrounded by fortified walls and few gates
Yekaterina is a main one, but nothing spectacular about it
Plus what you see is what you get, there is nothing in front or after it except modern building.
The gate is quarter a mile from the black church.
No fee to enter.

Sinagoga Neologa

Reviewed By Ulysses336 - Brasov, Romania

The Synagoge is in the Old Town,near to the Black Church in the Poarta Schei street and very close to the Rope street which became an attraction as the narrowest street of Europe,although I've seen narrower streets in Venice-Italy ; the Synagoge was built in 1901 and is one of the most beautiful in Romania; the Jewish community settled in Brasov in 1807 as in 2007 they celebrated 200 years of their settling in Brasov ; it is interesting that they were permitted to settle very near to the Black Church in a district which was totally dominated by the German (Saxon) population of Brasov ; for some time now,since a couple of years,Brasov is visited daily by a group of tourists from Israel ,so each day a coach arrives in Brasov for an 8 hours visit to Brasov with tourists from Israel who are staying in Sinaia ; all are visiting the Synagoge and also the statue of Itzak Rabin which is in the park of the Racadau district ; when I visited the Synagoge,there was a group of tourists from Israel there ; their guide explained something in their language,so I didn't understand why she was saying ,but the Synagoge made me a good impression ; it is naturally worth visiting ; please see the photos I'm attaching ;
