For a splendid panoramic view on Brasov, you can go up to the Tampa Hill which is 400 m above the city. TO get there you can walk (but there are often reports of bears there, so it's a bit dangerous) or you can use the cable car that takes you up almost instantly. The price is quite low, about 2 dollars for adults and 1 dollar for children. On Monday you cannot use it, from Tuesday to Friday it's from 9:30 to 17:00, on Saturday from 9:30 to 18:30 and on Sunday from 9:30 to 20:00. Highly recommended for the superb view on the city.
