Exploring Brasov, probably the most visited city in Romania after the capital Bucharest. It is surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains and is part of the historical region of Transylvania. The old town of Brasov is incredibly ancient. Pretty buildings in yellow, pink and blue, clearly show the passing of time but the basic structure of the city is very well preserved. There are many ancient fortresses, castles and churches around the area to visit. Nice restaurants and cafeterias are all around the town. Make sure to take the cable car to the top of the mountain for the amazing view. Also, about 15 minutes outside the city is Poiana Brasov, which offers some of the best skiing in Romania.
