Why visit Brasov?
If it is cobbled streets and medieval Saxon houses that you are looking for, then travel no further. Here in Brasov, the southern gateway to Transylvania, you have found the perfect place to set up camp and explore the region. In fact, there is no need to camp as Brasov has plenty of good value, centrally located hotels that are ideal for all types of traveller.
As a fairly popular tourist destination, Brasov has good tourist facilities. It may be due to the fact that it is not served by an international airport that makes it less well known to the generalpublic outside of Romania. For the UK travel market, Brasov is not as well known as similar old towns such as Sibiu and Cluj Napoca. That is not a bad thing though, and being the first to discover a place amongst your travelling friends has certain kudos.
A relatively easy place to explore, you will find that many staff in the shops, restaurants and hotel often speak English as well as another European language such as German. A great time to visit Brasov is during the Oktoberfest. This is a smaller but less commercial version of the Munich event, with beer tents, music and of course sausages.
