Stroll through Medieval Brasov


Many of the cosy open-air restaurants and pubs of Brasov's Old Town welcome guests with this title-logo. Sounds far-fetched? It's up to you to allot 2 hours and a half of your life to be part of Brasov's 800 years of history and to take with yourselves your share of Transylvanian peacefulness.
Starting from the Council Square, near the yellow building of the Old Town-Hall, meeting-point for both tourists and locals, we'll enjoy the stories of the Black Church, the most important landmark of this Saxon town, admire Katherine's Gate, the New Synagogue and stroll through the Rope Street, allegedly Europe's narrowest street. We'll have a bit of fresh air admiring the longest portion of medieval walls in Europe built in a straight line, then experience Brasov's colourful image from one of the cosy open-air restaurants or pubs along the main pedestrian shopping street, being left with cherished memories, to make you wish you had come here before.

Itinerary

Starting in the Council Square, then to the Black Church, visitable in most days of the year (except for Mondays and some celebrations), we will walk to Katherine's and Schei Gates, the New Synagogue, the Rope Street, the Weaver's Bastion, largest from Romania, visitable too. We continue our walking tour with the Under the Tampa Lane along the medieval walls, and return by the City-Hall and Local Council to our meeting point (or to the customer's hotel) via the Republicii Street, main pedestrian and shopping thoroughfare.

A Recent Review of this tour

We very much enjoyed our tour with Liviu. He adjusted the tour according to wishes and was considerate towards our daughter of 4yrs who is not as interested in history and guided tours as her parents. The tour was interesting and we learned a lot. Liviu also has a sense of humor, which we appreciate. We can absolutely recommend a tour with him!
