More than just a walking tour! It is a tour specially designed for the travellers who do not just want to see the sights but truly experience the destination. It includes the “must sees” of the old city of Brașov but also a ”special” place with a great view.

The tour runs with small groups, for you to have the opportunity for a more in depth and intimate experience and see places that larger groups can't...

The tour is based on a balanced walk/talk and a comfortable pace.

During the tour you will:

- Learn the essential things about Romania's history and culture

- Listen to the dark stories of medieval Brașov and Count Dracula

- Find out about communism and the Romanian revolution

- Discover Romania's wildlife

- Get familiar to the traditional Romanian dishes and taste the local candies

- Find out about the best restaurants and pubs in the city

- Get assistance and advice in planning your trip - must-see sights around Brasov and Romania

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:

- The Council Square - the most popular place in Brasov with lots of nice cafes, restaurants and pubs

- The Council House (outside) - the old townhall of Brasov

- The Black Church - the largest gothic church in South - Eastern Europe

BONUS: if you are interested, I can guide you inside; the full entrance ticket costs 12 lei

- The Rope Street - the third narrowest street in Europe

- Catherine Gate - the oldest medieval gate in Brasov, a real piece of jewellery

- Schei Gate - a 9-century old triumphal arch, the entrance to the old Romanian district

- the White and Black Tower (optional), part of the fortification system of the old citadel of Brasov

- The Weavers bastion (outside)- the best preserved part of Brasov's fortifications

- A scenic walk with a great view

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!

We had the tour with Diana on Sept. 7th. She organised it for two people only respecting all the covid measures. The tour was very insightful amd interesting giving an overwiev of the history of Brasov and modern life in the city and Romania in general. Diana gave us useful tips about places to visit and pubs to go to to enjoy the local beer and dishes. Definitely recommend it!
