The narrowest street in Europe

This is the narrowest street in Europe, I know. When you spread your hands you can reach both sides of the street, the buildings around it.

Little street joining the main town centre with more residential areas. A little claustrophobic experience, it's a tiny street between blocks, that's a bit wider than average door. Great photo op.

To be honest I don't think this is very narrow at all. We visited as part of the walking tour. You can easily put out both of your arms and still have space. I also noticed that this doesn't really have any houses, so for me it is more like an alley that just has the name of a street.... More

They told me it's one of the narrowest in the world... We just pass through, very peculiar but nothing you should plan to visit... If you are in Brasov sometime you will see it... But the entrance is really hidden

A pleasant or maybe scary for some people (an average of 123 cm in width) , but definitely interesting walk to be performed on a street designed to help the firefighters to do their job during the old times of the city.
