Brasov Sights

Anyone traveling in Europe will find a friendly welcome in Brasov. You'll see amazing Romanian architecture, historic attractions and more. Hotels are affordable, and there's always a wealth of things to do in Brasov. The imposing Carpathian Mountains surround Brasov's medieval beauty. Town Hall Square is ringed with baroque buildings and the Black Church is Romania’s largest gothic church. Squeeze down Rope Street, which is called the narrowest street in Europe. Then broaden your outlook with a cable car ride over the city. Council Square is one of Romania's best central squares. And you can still discover parts of Brasov's 14th century fort. Basing yourself in Brasov for a few days gives you time to soak up the atmosphere. It also provides access to three of Romania's best castles: Bran, Rasnov and Peles.

Brasov Tourism

If you do spend a few days in Brasov, try to catch a performance from the local opera or philharmonic. Festivals in Brasov take place all year. There's a Brasov beer festival in September and a jazz festival in November. In summer you can enjoy outdoor dining on the street of Piata Sfatului. That's where you'll find some of Brasov's best restaurants. Or take a hike up Mount Tampa (the gondola ride will get you there more easily). Some people think visiting Romania isn’t worth it if you don’t visit Brasov, and we'd tend to agree.

"Having used a number of companies have to say the JayWay "way" was the most personalised and organised. We really appreciated the excellent online portal, and the overall value was excellent."




The only way to travel is with JayWay Travel. From the planning process through the actual 25 day journey, we were all extremely satisfied. Actually, almost each and every night, we toasted our experience and highly recommend it to everyone.
