This is a large and beautiful town square with a number of historic buildings on its perimter and of course the usual restaurants some good and some not so good. A beautiful Orthodox church is the neighbor of a KFC store mixing the old with the newas an example.

My first experience set the mood for the rest of my week long stay in Brasov and surrounding area. Great small shop carrying nice mineral and crystal jewelry, other shops and places to eat were all great. Public drinking fountains are super inviting and clean in the the warm spring sun. Great place !! Many attractions within 30-40 minute walks... More

Nice old town square. Great for a stop after a walk in the city and drink a coffee or beer at one of the cafes.

This is the centre of little Brasov and a cute little area. There isn't much to do but explore the little laneways and have some coffee and snacks. t
