Let yourself be carried away by the small streets of Brasov that are ready to show you the beauty and history of our country. Below, you will find some of the objectives that will delight you, waiting to wish you “Welcome to our home!”
- The Council Square ( Piata Sfatului) – Located at the heart of old medieval Brasov and lined with beautiful red-roofed merchant houses, the Council Square, known to the Saxon population as the Marktplatz, is a nice place to rest and soak in the beautiful scenery.
- The Old Town Hall ( Casa Sfatului) – Built in the 13th century, the house served as meeting place for the town councilors, known as centurions. On top of the building sits the Trumpeter’s Tower, used during the Middle Ages as a watchtower for warning the citadel inhabitants of approaching danger.
- The Black Church (Biserica Neagra) – Brasov’s famous landmark and Romania’s leading gothic church, the Black Church towers over the Council Square and the old town.
- Graft Bastion (Bastionul Graft) – The newly restored 16th century bastion (1521) has four levels, accessible through interior staircases. Levels two, three and four host an array of medieval artifacts exhibits, while level one serves as a rest area for visitors.
- White Tower (Turnul Alb) -Located near Graft Bastion, the semicircular White Tower was completed in 1494. A wooden staircase spirals up four levels, offering a great view of the old town. Located high on a hill, you’ll have to climb some 200 steps to reach it.
- Black Tower (Turnul Negru) – The squared Black Tower, also built in 1494, stands atop a rock on Starja Hill near the Blacksmiths’ Bastion. The tower received its name from a severe fire in 1559 when it was struck by lightning. Recently renovated and boasting a pyramid-shaped glass roof, the Black Tower houses a small war-related artifacts museum. There are four floors inside, each reached by a narrow wooden ladder.
- Blacksmiths’ Bastion (Bastionul Fierarilor) – First attested in 1529, the Blacksmiths’ Bastion is now home to the Brasov Archives which hosts more than 100,000 old and rare documents, including 80 valuable 14th – 16th century letters. Among them is the oldest letter in the Romanian language, written in 1521 by Neacsu, a merchant from the town of Campulung.
