Whether you’re an Instagram junkie or you simply want to make your memories last forever, here are the best places to check out on your next adventure in Brasov!
Strada Sforii (Rope Street)
Being one of the narrowest streets in Europe, Rope Street is the perfect place to get creative with your shots! This cool and unusual street was initially built as a corridor for firemen, and today is one of the most popular places in Brasov. You can find it just a short walk from Piata Sfatului and it’s usually a little crowded, as most people try to snap the perfect shot while being there.
Turnul Alb (The White Tower)
If you’re looking for the perfect panoramic view over the city and the Old Town, The White Tower should definitely be on your list. You can easily get there by climbing some steps and while the inside of the tower is closed to visitors, the outside platform is everything you could wish for and more. It’s almost impossible not to get a great picture there and it’s free to visit, so we recommend visiting during the day and the night both!
Piata Sfatului (Council Square)
With colourful old buildings that will immediately catch your eye, this beautiful square is the heart of Brasov and one of the liveliest places you’ll find in the city. If you want to snap the perfect holiday picture, here you’ll find plenty of opportunities and more. Situated right in the centre of the Old Town, this place has also a fountain, lots of pigeons and everything you need for that perfect action shot.
Dr. Jekelius - Pharmacy Café
This pharmacy themed café located not too far from the main square has the most photogenic cocktails you can dream of! With a quirky décor and a fun atmosphere, Dr. Jekelius succeeds in being one of the coolest places in town and one of the most loved amongst Instagram users. If the idea of laboratory tubes, glass beakers and and old books sounds good to you, we’re sure that you'll be taking lots of pictures once you get there.
With a spectacular view over Brasov, this place will offer you the best opportunity to capture the city from above. You can get there by catching a cable car from the base of the Tampa Mountain and once you arrive to the top, you can easily find your way to the famous Brasov sign. This is for sure a must-do activity while visiting the city, either you love hiking or you just want to take some fun pictures for your feed.
This super Instagrammable gate looks like it came straight out of a fairy-tale and we’re more than sure that it will quickly become one of your favourite things to snap on your visit to Brasov.
Being the oldest surviving medieval entrance to the City, the well-preserved architectural gate can be found really close to the city centre and it’s definitely worth a quick stop on your tour for the great photo opportunity.
Maybe the most famous attraction in Brasov, The Black Church got its name after the fire that followed the Turkish invasion of 1689. The beautiful Gothic architecture of the Church makes it a great place to take exterior photos, as unfortunately you’re not allowed to take any photos inside. You can find this historical landmark right in the heart of Brasov and we absolutely recommend putting it on your list!
