Brașov, Romania

Hollywood in Transylvania

Forrest Mallard

Brașov (pronounced Bra-shov) is the 7th largest city in Romania. It is located almost in the center of the country and surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains. Braşov is one of the most visited cities in Transylvania.

Location

Directions

Braşov boasts everything from dynamic modern city life to old world charm and fascinating scenery. Brașov has the best cleanliness record in Romania, great transport, and great food. The city is considered expensive by Romanian standards, especially in the high season, but as a Westerner, you will not even notice the price difference.

Braşov county is one of the most visited areas in Romania by tourists.

Due to fairly large minority populations, Hungarian and German are also spoken in addition to Romanian. I also had no problem speaking with anyone in English.
