“All that is missing is a decent view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

I think whoever built the cable car to the top of Tampa Mountain planted lots of fast-growing fir trees to obscure the view so you have to pay to use the cable car to get a good panoramic picture of Brasov! Nice restaurant at the top after the 45 minute hike. There is a little viewing place hidden down the side of the restaurant on the left looking towards the town but not what I was expecting. A lovely walk though.

“Well worth the trouble”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

The view of Brasov from the top of the cable car ride is outstanding. The place could use some cleaning up and there was rubbish strewn around. Typical government operated site.

“Nice by cabin, great by foot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

You can climb the Tampa hill by cabin and descend by foot. The view of the city of Brasov is perfect, especially in autumn.
