Brasov is one of the largest cities in Romania with a population of approx 280,000. There are basically 2 parts of Brasov; the pretty Saxon old town and its square situated beneath Mount Tampa and then the surrounding concrete jungles of tower blocks and factories.The old town is one of the best preserved old towns in Europe with splendid architecture and old fortifications and is well worth taking a few days to explore.The city has an amazing history with influences from Germany, the Austria-Hungarian Empire and the old communist state.
The Fortifications around the city were erected and continually expanded, with several towers maintained by different craftsmen's guilds, according to medieval custom. Part of the fortification ensemble was recently restored using UNESCO funds, and other projects are ongoing.
You can visit and explore the area by having daily trips.
