What are you visiting in Brasov?

Located in the centre of Brasov, here you will find many restaurants, terraces, other tourist attractions nearby and you have a direct view of the mountain!
The history of the Black Church began in the 14th century, when the present church was built on the remains of a former church. It was not until the end of the 15th century that its construction was completed, in a Gothic style. In the 17th century there was a great fire that destroyed the roof and the interior furnishings of the church, and the walls became blackened. Hence the name it bears today! The church is less than 200 m from the Council Square.
The Catherine Gate was part of the gates of the fortress of Brasov around the 15th century and today it is an important historical monument. It is one of the oldest and most beautiful such gates in our country, especially as it has preserved most of its original appearance. It is located 500 m from the Council Square.
Tampa Mountain is located right in the center of Brasov and reaches an altitude of 960 m. From the top, you can admire a superb and indescribable view over Brasov.

In Hollywood style a sign with the inscription ''Brasov'' has been built on the mountain. A trail leading to the top of the mountain is less than 800 m from Piata Sfatului.
