IS THIS AN ACTIVE TOUR THEN?!

You will see why we call it Romania’s outdoor capital. You’ll never be more than 10 min. away from this very place but yet in the woods on hills or on quite challenging stairs. So apart from loads of information about Brasov’s history and culture, you’ll also get a healthy appetite at the end of the tour 🙂

That’s why Brasov has always been the place of competitive, focused people, be it sports, or business or politics. And you can see this throughout its history. From it’s early days as a Saxon free city until present days when we are seeing a swift economic rise among other Romanian cities.
