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:)

Brasov History

Bran CastleThe situation changed as the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires began to show signs of weakness. By the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century, all the regions of Romania were symbolically united by a wave of patriotic awakening. Romanians had schools, churches and a newspaper in their native language, and were even granted citizenship for several decades – they soon lost it as a consequence of the Bourgeois Revolution on 1848. By this time, the major ethnic groups living in Brasov were mainly Saxons and Romanians, followed by Hungarians, Jews and Greeks.... Read more »
