Guided Walking Tour of Brasov: Major Sights & Medieval History

Doru With: Doru 6
Brasov is one of Romania's most charming and beautiful cities: large squares, narrow cobbled streets, sturdy merchant townhouses, defense bastions, Saxon influences, towering mountains, gothic churches - it has it all! With so much to see, a walking tour with a local is the best way to discover the beauty of Brasov, its fascinating history and the most interesting local sights!


Moments to expect in the Guided Walking Tour of Brasov:

  • The oldest medieval city in Transylvania

    The oldest medieval city in Transylvania

    Our first stop will be the iconic Piata Sfatului, Brasov’s picturesque main square where you will be offered a covrig, a popular and delicious Romanian street food snack. Two hundred years ago, Brasov sat literally on the border between the Austro-Hungarian empire and the Ottoman empire and its culture vividly reflects this - so prepare for a fascinating & live history lesson!

  • Medieval sights & buildings

    After the sights in Old Town, we head on narrow streets to Tampa promenade to find an old fountain with fresh spring water from the Carpathians and replenish our fluids. Then we climb to the top of the 12-meter wall surrounding the city for some spectacular views! Our next stop is St. Nicholas Church with its 'suspended cemetery' and the fairytale-esque Ecaterina Gate, the oldest in the city.

  • Brasov's medieval defences

    Brasov's medieval defences

    The city's defense system was very advanced for Medieval times so we will visit Weaver's Bastion and the famous Black and White towers to learn more about how Brasov defended itself. Venturing beyond city walls we will also discover the entrances to secret catacombs, impressive street art, stunning parklands and how everyday locals enjoy life at a more relaxed pace than Bucharest!

  • The most famous Gothic landmark

    The most famous Gothic landmark

    Heading back to the main square in Old Town we visit a very old and beautiful bookstore (souvenir shopping alert!) before we head towards the city’s most famous landmark: the Black Church. It’s the biggest Gothic church in Eastern Europe with a 700-year-old impressive history and a peculiar name for church. Time to find out why - and we visit the inside if there's nothing going on!
