Highlights
  • See Brasov after dark on a candlelit walking tour
  • Stroll through the well-preserved medieval city center with a guide
  • Learn the long history behind one of Romania’s most charming Saxon towns
  • Stop for a drink or a bite in a pub that dates back to the Middle Ages
What to expect
  • Meet your guide in Brasov’s Council Square, the heart of the old city center that’s within easy walking distance of most hotels. Learn about the town’s history as you admire the baroque buildings that line this central gathering place. Founded in 1235 by Teutonic knights, Brasov is one of Romania’s best examples of a fortified Saxon town, and much of its medieval character is retained in narrow streets and carefully restored buildings. See historic highlights, including the Gothic Black Church, charred by a fire, and the entrance known as Catherine's Gate to the old city. Get a new perspective on these lamplit monuments as you safely tour under the cover of darkness. Take part in the lively local pub scene during a stop at one of Brasov’s oldest and most atmospheric bars, where you can order from a wide selection of Romanian beer and bar snacks (own expense).

Awesome tour in Brasov!
Jun 2021
We had our own private tour with Ioana during late evening.
Since there's daylight until 9 PM, no candles, but still very worthy!
Ioana is very kind, patient and talks excellent English! We got to know many things about the city and the area, historically and culturally, and we passed through secret passages that we didn't even notice in the old city centre.
I would do this again and recommend it to anyone who visits this beautiful city!

A Tour best avoided
Jul 2019 • Family
First things first, there is nothing candle light about this, in summers there is daylight till 9:00 PM in Brasov, the tour starts at 7:30 PM and ends before 9 (IN DAYLIGHT). The guide that we got sometimed forgot what she had to say, there was no passion in her voice. Overall this is soemthng that can be avoided.

We selected the Brasov candlelight tour, and had the most amazing time with our guide, Greg, who brought history to life with his stories. Professional and entertaining, you can tell he likes his job, it has been one of our best tours yet!
