Overview
Explore the beauty of Brasov city by night on this 2 hours walking tour with your knowledgeable tour guide. The tour starts at Council City Square, the heart of the medieval town, and we'll carry on strolling through medieval neighborhoods, visiting some of the most important landmarks of the city, like The Black Church, the old southern gate of the city, Katherine's Gate and much more. Deepen your knowledge about the city's history and relax yourself in some of the most prestigious local Irish pubs.
Highlights
  • See Brasov after dark on a candlelit walking tour
  • Stroll through the well-preserved medieval city center with a guide
  • Learn the long history behind one of Romania’s most charming Saxon towns
  • Stop for a drink or a bite in a pub that dates back to the Middle Ages
What to Expect
Meet your guide in Brasov’s Council Square, the heart of the old city center that’s within easy walking distance of most hotels. Learn about the town’s history as you admire the baroque buildings that line this central gathering place. Founded in 1235 by Teutonic knights, Brasov is one of Romania’s best examples of a fortified Saxon town, and much of its medieval character is retained in narrow streets and carefully restored buildings. See historic highlights, including the Gothic Black Church, charred by a fire, and the entrance known as Catherine's Gate to the old city. Get a new perspective on these lamplit monuments as you safely tour under the cover of darkness. Take part in the lively local pub scene during a stop at one of Brasov’s oldest and most atmospheric bars, where you can order from a wide selection of Romanian beer and bar snacks (own expense).
