Brasov’s Architectural Highlights

3 Jul

BRASOV, ROMANIA

As a former German colony, this walled medieval village still has a decidedly German feel. It’s a quirky town with a friendly vibe, spotless streets, and the advantage of having fresh mountain air. Although it’s supposedly touristy, I felt like I was the only tourist there, which was nice. I especially enjoyed the brightly colored buildings, many of them were paint-chipped, but bursting with character.

It’s PROBABLY the best city in the world

Brasov’s beloved Black Church- named such after a pretty bad fire

Note the Hollywood inspired sign on Mt.Tampa

Piata Sfatului

How everyone dresses in Romania. Just kidding! These guys stood around while some similarly dressed fellows trumpeted from a building in the main plaza

>Interesting fact: In German Brasov, Romanians were not allowed to enter the town walls. Instead, they settled just outside of them in the Shei district.

Nice mosaics in the city center

More interesting architecture in the women’s bathroom 🙂
