Full description
Brasov (pronounced Bra-shov), known as Kronstadt in German or Brassó in Hungarian, is the 7th largest city in Romania. It is located almost in the center of the country and surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains. The city provides a mix of wonderful mountain scenery in the nearby Poiana Braşov, and medieval history with German influences in the old town. Admire the beauty of Brasov through a 2-hour walking tour. During your medieval journey in the “Crown City” you will discover its historical and cultural sightseeings. Admire the Weavers' Bastion and go to the 4-foot-wide Rope Street (Strada Sforii). This was initially used as an access route by firefighters. Visit also Brasov Synagogue and see the Catholic Church, Post Orchard, White Tower and Black Tower. The city tour ends with some free time for you to explore on your own and have lunch. After the free time, depart for Bran Castle and the mysterious legend of Dracula, the last stop before the return drive to Sibiu via Brasov.

We first visited Bran Castle in the morning and early afternoon. We then went to Brasov where we took a walking tour of the city. The tour was done by a very knowledgeable guide who told us some interesting history and anecdotes regarding Transylvania. The tour leader was very kind and helpful for the whole duration of the excursion. I absolutely recommend!

Alex, the tour guide, kept us all informed about everything we saw during the 2hr drive each way to Brasov from Sibiu, especially when going through the small towns/villages. In Brasov, we walked much further than expected and visited all the key sights, again, informed in much detail about each. Whilst Bran castle was interesting from historic perspective, there was little evidence of Dracula (not surprisingly) and at the entrance very, very little worth purchasing from the wealth of small shops.
