  • Delightful historic monument, commissioned by the merchants of Brasov, surrounded by a serene little pocket park. We took a quick breath here in between tourist activities. Not much to see here but worth a moment of your time to look and reflect.

  • A symbol of the city, worth having a stop and take a look around.

  • Brasov is an amazing place to visit. Romania as a country really stole our hearts, but Brasov has so much charm and the people as so nice. Make this the first place you stay in Romania and you too will be won over.

  • An interesting place to visit and to learn about Brasov 's history.

  • Good visiting spot
