“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Clean, old-fashioned and quaint. Excellent restaurants and cafe society. Watch the world go by without the pestering of beggars and touts encountered in Bucharest

“Beautiful square, plenty of history and architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

This is a beautiful square in the middle of Brasov that is worth a stroll at anytime during the day or night. It is ringed with restaurants and bar with interesting side streets going off of it. Definitely the place to watch people as it is always busy.

There are many old and beautiful buildings wtih incredible architecture.

“best place in Brasov”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

its a beautiful place to spend the time, you can have a lot of fun out there, you have a lot of options to do, you can just set outside and eat ice-cream, or go to a place and eat or drink or just have a walk in strada Republici, its a "must to go there" place !!!!

“Very vibrant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is a typical European square that one sees all over Europe, and which almost defines Europe. It is very vibrant and lively. Two days before Easter (the orthodox Easter), there was an enactment of Christ being flogged and taken for hanging on the cross. The guy dressed up as Christ was actually getting beaten and flogged by 4 -5 burly men dressed as Roman soldiers. It was actually quite pathetic, but it attracted the crowds any way. I was shocked that this kind of public display of violent behavior was being shown in a public square and was watched by children of all ages.

There is a huge sign for Tourism info office in the center of the square. But during all the 3 days I was there, it was dead! Go figure!

“A nice place to chill up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Definitely my favorite place in Brasov, you can almost spend the whole day there, just chilling. The Republicii street next to the square offers a lots of bars & restaurants, and the majority of Brasov's points of interest are within 10 min walking.
