The charming old medieval centre with German influences permeating throughout seems a stark contrast to the modern aspects of the city. As one of the most visited cities in Transylvania, Brasov makes the list of Romania’s top destinations. It is nestled comfortably among the Carpathian Mountains, which puts it in close proximity to nature outings and excursions. The normally frigid weather places into the romantic cityscape, which is marked by centuries of changing architectural styles and cultural uplifts. The city today is home to some 220,000 people, a large number despite what its quaintness seems to have visitors believe.
