Brasov city tour

3 hours

This city tour guides you back in medieval Brasov, through the narrow streets of the Old Town. Located at the bottom of Tampa hill, Brasov is guarded from three directions by the mountains which made it very easy to defend during medieval invasions of Goths, Slavs, Turks, even Austrians. You will walk along the old town walls which are very well preserved and see the two remaining guarding towers. The Council Square and the imposing Black Church will certainly be the attractions of this tour. The statue of Johannes Honterus, the reformer of Transilvania, will give you also an introspective in the cultural life of the Region. Walking along the Rope Street which was listed by the Guiness Book of World Records as narrowest Street in the World you will arrive at the foot of Tampa mountain, and visit the Weaver's Bastion, the only medieval defense station still standing. Just nearby you can also see the tennis ground where famous sportsman Ion Tiriac made his early practice.
Tour starts and ends at your hotel (or in front of Aro Palace hotel).

Thank you for travelling with us and hope you had an interesting trip.
