Probably the most beautiful city in Romania, Brasov is a great place to visit in any season, the perfect destination for exploring Transylvania.
Brasov is close to the medieval castle of Bran known for the Dracula legend, the royal Peles Castle, the Unesco fortified church of Prejmer, the beautiful medieval city of Sighișoara, the picturesque Saxon village of Viscri and many other interesting attractions.
If you like nature, you can also go hiking in the mountains around Brasov.
Brasov itself is a beautiful medieval city, with lots of places for great photos, a perfect destination for romantic lovers, solo travellers or familes with kids.
Sights that we'll see during the walking tour:

IMPORTANT: Please book your tour a few hours before the tour starts, preferably the day before.
My groups are small and intimate so the sooner you save your place, the better...
Anyway, you can always ask me if your tour is available.
In case of organized groups larger than 10 people, please warn me and the tour will run only for you (no additional cost).
I have had very nice experiences with large families, including kids or large groups of students.
Get off the beaten track to enjoy authentic local interaction and truly understand Brasov and Romania!
