The only free walking tour of Brasov at night! Experience Brasov’s mysterious atmosphere and find out its dark secrets during an interactive and fun tour, tailored to your needs and interests.

The saying: "All cats are grey in the dark” certainly does not apply here as Brasov is fantastic at night. In case you have already visited the old city, you will be surprised to see that after dark Brasov is even more fascinating.

The most exciting part of the tour is a walk on the alley at the foot of Tâmpa Mountain, for you to enjoy a great view of the city at night.

The two-hour free walking tour of the old city of Brasov includes the top key points: the Council Square, the Black Church, the Rope Street, Catherine Gate, Schei Gate, the Weavers bastion, a scenic walk along the alley at the foot of Tâmpa Mountain, a great view of the most picturesque Romanian city and much more.

Great tour! Diana is very nice and friendly and did her best to make us feel comfortable. She knows so many interesting things about Brașov and Romania - history, culture, religion, local restaurants, places to hang out, you can see she loves her job. I did appreciate that she did the tour only for me and my friend so she gave us her full attention. It was magic to see Brasov from the top of the hill, to see people skating outdoors, discover places where we would have never gone by ourselves, especially at to say nothing about the sweet surprise she offered us. Thank you a lot, Diana!

I really enjoyed my tour with Diana. She showed us the main sights of Brasov and took us above the city to look down on it at night, something that we would not have done on our own. Somehow, she managed to get us to walk uphill without us noticing! She told us of good places to eat and drink and places nearby that we might like to visit. She was friendly and interesting.
