Bran is a commune in Brașov County, Transylvania, Romania. It is about 25 kilometres southwest of the city of Brașov and consists of five villages: Bran, Poarta , Predeluț , Șimon and Sohodol . The medieval Bran Castle is a popular tourist destination, partly because it is associated with the home of Dracula in Bram Stoker's novel of the same name.

Day 2
Brasov itinerary, Tâmpa
 31     19     32     10
  Duration: 1.5 hrs

Tâmpa is a mountain, part of the Postăvarul Massif, located in the southern part of the Eastern Carpathians and almost entirely surrounded by the city of Braşov. Its elevation is 960 m , almost 400 m above the city. The mountain is mostly made up of limestone formations, having risen up gradually from the Earth's crust. Most of the mountain is a declared nature reserve, due to the rare animal species and plant species that are found there.

Place of Interest
Brasov itinerary, Black Church
 68     29     30     10
  Duration: 1 hrs

The Black Church, Biserica Neagră in Romanian , stands in the city of Brașov in south-eastern Transylvania, Romania. It was built by the Saxon community of the city and represents the main Gothic-style monument in the country, as well as being the largest and one of the most important houses of worship in the region which belong to the Lutheran, i. e. Evangelical Church of Augustan Confession in Romania. Author Judit Petki contends that, contrary to a widely held view, the Black Church did not receive its dark appearance as a result of the fire which affected much of the city in 1689, but only in recent times due to pollution. The current popular name is apparently a 19th-century creation.

  Duration: 2 hrs

Just down hill from White Tower is the Graft Bastion, a small fortified building attached to the city walls. Its name comes from the small Graft canal that runs under it and along the outside of the walls. It in fact once connected with the White Tower by a long and steep bridge. Inside the bastion is a museum, however it was closed through the duration of my visit.

Right on the main old town square (which you’ll read about below), the museum does a wonderful job of highlighting the changes of Transylvanian towns and cities between the 16th and 19th century.

  Duration: 2 hrs

You certainly won’t go hungry while traveling in Brasov. There are so many delicious restaurants and cafes that your biggest challenge will be deciding where to go. We highly recommend sampling some of the rich, flavorful Romanian cuisines. Some of the popular traditional dishes include sarmale (cabbage-wrapped rolls filled with minced meat), smoked pork knuckle with beans, and polenta with cheese and sour cream (which quickly became one of my favorites). If you’re a meat lover (like my husband Nathan), you will love Romanian food! Need some guidance on where to dine? We loved Ursul Carpatin, Restaurant Transylvania, and Le Ceaun.

Brasov itinerary, Poarta Ecaterinei
 0     11     33     6
  Duration: 1.5 hrs

Known as Catherine’s Gate in English, Poarta Ecaterinei is the only gate in Brasov to have survived from medieval times. The gate was built in 1559 for defensive reasons after a previous gate had been destroyed by a flood. Romanians were only allowed to enter the city through this gate and were required to pay a toll when entering. The impressive architecture of Catherine’s Gate makes it one of the best places to visit in Brasov.

Place of Interest
Brasov itinerary, Beth Israel Synagogue

  Duration: 1.5 hrs

Built in the 19th century, the Synagogue has some interesting architectural elements, a mix of a Neo-Gothic style with some Moorish details. It still plays a very important role in maintaining the Jewish tradition in Brasov. There’s a small Holocaust Memorial here as well.

Brasov itinerary, Sforii Residence

  Duration: 1.5 hrs

The narrow alley has always been a great attraction for Brasov visitors, but especially for young lovers who come here to kiss in intimacy. The legend has it that those who kiss on Sforii Street are destined to stay together all their lives. So what are you waiting for?

Brasov itinerary, Rope Street Museum
 0     1     30     0
  Duration: 1.5 hrs

Strada Sforii, or Rope Street, is the third narrowest street in Europe, measuring a mere 111cm wide at its narrowest. The street was built in the 15th century for firefighters to pass between the two major parts of the city. At one end, you can also visit the Rope Street Museum to learn the untold stories of Brasov.

Brasov itinerary, Turnul Negru
 0     13     32     0
  Duration: 3 hrs

The Old Town of Brasov consists of what used to be the Saxons' fortified town. The walls and watch towers have been restored (partly using UNESCO funds) in recent years, and you should definitely find time to get up at least one of the towers. I can say from personal experience that the view from the Black Tower may well be the best view in the city.

  Duration: 3 hrs

Făgăraș Citadel is a historic monument in Făgăraș, Brașov County, Romania. The construction of the fortress started in 1310, on the site of a wooden fortification with earth ramparts from the 12th century. Archeological research shows that the old fortification was violently destroyed around the middle of the 13th century, presumably in connection with the Mongol invasion of 1241. Located halfway between Brașov and Sibiu and close to Wallachia, the Făgăraș Citadel provided a defensive position against possible incursions into south-eastern Transylvania.In 1526, Ștefan Mailat consolidated the citadel, doubling the thickness of the walls.
