Brasov, one of Romania's greatest cities
After seeing the castles we went back to visit Brasov one of the biggest cities in Romania.
After finding a place to park our car (without paying a fee:)) we went to see the city center and the famous Black Church. I've already been there once so I knew the way and we didn't get lost:) Unfortunately we arrived at about 6 PM and the Church had been opened only till 5 o'clock (when I was there last it wasn't opened too because it was Sunday...this is my luck...). But we made some pictures of it and went further.
Brasov has a big and very clean square in the center. I liked it very much because there were lot of doves walking around.
From the square we had a beautiful view of the mountains. And there was a funny thing, too: on one of the hills was a Brasov sign, you know, like in Hollywood:)
We couldn't spend too much time in this city because we had to find a place to sleep for that night, but I think we saw the best part of it:)
