Brasov is a really beautiful city, with a lot of ancient buildings including the famous Black Church and the city's castle. The inner city is also beautiful wearing the signs of Transilvanian Saxon architecture. There are a lot of old houses very well preserved, it's a little bit like people don't even want to restore them, they don't wnt to loose the houses' autenticity.
Don't miss out the go up to the Brasovian hill called Timpa and take a look over the city, it is amazing. Bring a good camera and take wonderful pictures all over the city.
