Customer Travel Tip: Stay and spend all your time in the medieval city. Make sure you take the cable car to the top of the BRASOV sign! Amazing view!

Liked: The medieval city is amazing! Feels like a transport back in time to old Transylvania.

Disliked: Outside of the old walled city, modern Brasov was a bit more run-down.

Customer Travel Tip: Just feel the city :) And don't miss Rasnov citadel (10-12 km away).

Liked: It is a beautiful city. Very colorful, nice old buildings, cute streets and neighbourhoods, spectacular surrounding mountains. There is a castle in the city and interesting cathedrals and a lot to see in the near towns as Bran castle, Rasnov citadel, Sinaia, etc.

Disliked: The traffic and the drivers and pedestrians behaviour. Also it is extremely hard to find working food store after 9:00 PM.

Travel Type:

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: On Mondays many of the museums and major sites are closed so check with the local tourist office before setting off.

Liked: Brasov is a wonderful town and provides opportunities for both sightseeing and also relaxing. Brasov makes a perfect base for exploring nearby attraction (e.g., Bran Castle, Rasnov, Prejmer - fortified churches). There are many wonderful cafes, bars and restaurants within the cities pedestrian streets with good views of Mt Tampa and the Clock Tower to take advantage of whilst relaxing and taking in the local culture.

Disliked: If you do not have a car you need to be well planned for public transport links which seemed to operate hourly. It was not a huge problem as locals also provide lifts along the major bus routes for the same price of the bus/minibus (not sure if legitimate but it fills a void in the current system).

Customer Travel Tip: I wouldn't recommend spending a lot of time at the train station. If you do lock up you bag. There are many children and adults begging at the station. They are very friendly so, I don't think safety is really much of an issue but, I would recommend keeping an eye on your things at all times.

Liked: Beautfiul place. There is a lot to see in Brasov and it is all within walking distance. The old city is very beautiful. It takes about an hour to hike up the mountain in Brasov where you can get an amazing view. The Black Church is definetly worth checking out. It is also very easy to get to many other towns from Brasov for example Bran, Sighisoara, Rasnov.

Disliked: No.

Customer Travel Tip: Don't pay for a tour to go to Bran castle. Take the 6 RON bus from Autogara 2 and from where the bus drops off in Brasov, it's a quick walk to the castle entrance. Buses run hourly (and usually more frequently than that.)

Liked: Hollywood-type BRASOV sign at the top of the hill. In better weather, you can apparently take a cable car or hike to the top.

Disliked: weather was horrible when I visited.... it's not nice to walk on the cobblestone streets in the rain and get your feet soaking wet. not much to do when it's raining.
