Lovely atmosphere and well worth a visit. We went in December when the Christmas market was there. The Christmas tree and lights are amazing. Attractive square and also the Black Church is there to see.

This is an attractive central square with historic buildings all around. The Christmas market is really nice and has lots of atmosphere at night. I would really love to see some tourist signs though and info panels about the history of Brasov or about particular buildings of interest.

A good meeting point and starting place to explore the city of Brasov. Slap bang in the city centre with Hotel Casa Wagner an excellent place to stay.

When arriving in Brasov is a must to see... Very close is the Black Church, an impressive monument dated in the middle age. Don't miss it!
