Even though is the city centre , it is quiet and nice , there are a lot of places where you can choose to eat, or you can just take a few moments to relax.

As the title says, after visiting the Old Town, this was the place where we took a break. The buildings around look great and they give you the taste of an old era.

Council Square (a.k.a. Piața Sfatului) is in the heart of old town. Brașov was an important local and international trading center in medieval times; Piața Sfatului has been holding weekly markets since 1364. The former Council House (Casa Sfatului; built in 1420) is in the middle of the square and is now the Brașov County Museum of History. The square is a good starting point for exploring the old town. A great fire destroyed most of the former walled city in 1689; it took several decades to rebuild. Piața Sfatului is surrounded by 18th-19th century houses, historic sights, museums, indoor and outdoor terraces, shops and restaurants. The square and surrounding streets are accessible at all times with no entry fee. Landmarks are beautifully lit at night.

I lived close to the Square when I lived in Brasov. There is so much to do here,some great coffee shops and places to eat. The Black Church and Livada Postei (the bus stop) are steps away.
