In the winter months Brașov is transformed into a winter wonderland with layers of fresh snow blanketing the rooftops of pastel-coloured houses around the square. There’s a relaxed, romantic feel as you meander through Brasov’s narrow cobblestone streets passing charming 13th-century buildings.
As you take in the abundance of history this city has to offer you will be transported back in time. Up above on the snowcapped hills overlooking the medieval square lies Poiana Brașov, a small skiing destination that draws the crowds during ski season.
Brasov is one of Romania’s most visited destinations and for good reason; it’s situated in an ideal Transylvanian location, making it an ideal base for exploring the region. Venture to the nearby Carpathian mountains or visit Bran Castle to explore the myth and intrigue of the legend that is Dracula.
