Visit Brasov - Best of Brasov

Brașov (Romanian pronunciation: [braˈʃov] ; also known by other ) is a city in Romania and the administrative centre of Brașov County. According to the last Romanian census, from 2011, there were 253,200 people living within the city of Brașov, making it the 7th most populous city in Romania, and the metropolitan area is home to 369,896 residents. Brașov is located in the central part of the country, about 166 kilometres (103 miles) north of Bucharest and 380 kilometres (236 miles) from the Black Sea. It is surrounded by the Southern Carpathians and is part of the Transylvania region. The city is notable for being the birthplace of the national anthem of Romania and for hosting the Golden Stag International Music Festival.


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.
