Brasov: Attractions and more...
The city has plenty to boast about apart from the friendly people and the fresh air. You can get an impressive view of the city from the Tâmpa Hill cable car at a height of nearly 1000 m. A city tour can be both enjoyable and informative.
Also visit the Bran Castle, which according to legend used to be the home of the infamous Count Dracula. The Peles Castle is another imposing monument which used to house the Romanian royal family and is now a favourite tourist spot.
Various attractions in the city include one of the most spectacular cathedrals in Romania, the Black Church (which has a huge display of antique rugs), the Municipality Council House (which is now a city museum) and Strada Sforii (which is the narrowest street in Europe).
Brasov is the gateway to the world famous Poiana Brasov ski resort, which is 12 km out of the city. The resort is equipped with restaurants, hotels, sports facilities and of course, fabulous ski slopes.
