    During a Halloween trip to Romania, my wife and I visited Sighişoara, Braşov, Bran, and Sibiu. We really enjoyed what each city had to offer. However, we really enjoyed this remarkable stop on our tour. Perhaps, it was because our tour guide was born and raised in Braşov, perhaps not. We just loved the openess of this main square. There is so much to see and do with lots of shopping and plenty of dining facilities. Make sure your visit to Romania inudes Braşov.

    Came here for the third time today and every time it was such a calm and beautiful hike. Each time I got to the peak by the stairs (although this path is pretty hidden) and descended on the "serpentine". The scenary from the top is stunning and you can enjoy a drink at the bar next to the cable car building. This bar also has a toilet.

    There is a lot of discussion as to why this church is called the Black Curch or one of its many other names (Romanian: Biserica Neagră, German: Die Schwarze Kirche, Hungarian: Fekete templom). It stands in the city of Brașov and was built by the local Transylvanian Saxon (German) community of the city during medieval times 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.

    Contrary to a widely held view that the Black Church received its dark appearance as a result of the fire which affected much of the city in 1689, author Judit Petki contends that there is no evidence to support this belief. She calls the view that the Black Church got its name because it was sooted by the 1689 Brașov fire, a misconception. Firstly, the current popular name is apparently a 19th-century creation. Secondly, she bases her view on 21st-century studies, which have found no evidence of fire destruction; the church has blackened simply because of environmental pollution after Brașov has turned into an industrial city in the 19th century.

    Interestingly, from what I saw, the black color is really only on the one side of the church. Regardless, this church is historic and worth seeing. My wife and I only got to see the outside due to the city tour and time. We did learned that on the backside, there is a boy carved in to one of the support pillars. Allegedly, this child died during construction. He was apprenticed to one of the two competing builders. After he died, the other builder honored the child as the one to whom he was apprenticed felt no remorse at the loss of life. You must see the inside to truly appreciate any church.

    My wife and I visited Braşov during a Halloween tour of Romania. Our tour guide was from Braşov so she gave us an outstanding presentation on this amazing city. We began at Catherine's Gate (Romanian: Poarta Ecaterinei, German: Katharinentor, Hungarian: Katalin-kapu), which was built by the Tailors’ Guild, in 1559 for defensive purposes to replace an old gate destroyed by a flood in 1526. It is named after St. Catherine's Monastery that was situated here in former times. It is the only original city gate to have survived from medieval times. In fact, the central tower is only a part of the original gate. Documents talk about the existence of a wooden structure which was demolished in 1827. The original structure can be seen at the Weaver's Bastion where the large model of Brașov in 1600 is displayed. It is best to enter the city here to begin your visit to Braşov.

    My friends and I stopped by this site when looking around Brasov, and were invited to join a school tour by two very friendly guides. Ioan in particular was lovely, very passionate and inclusive. We even got sung the Romanian national anthem to by the group of children. We learnt more about Romanian culture and even got nice souvenirs.

    It was a 10/10 experience and I would recommend everyone to come to this lovely attraction.

    This museum is a pleasant surprise; it has a rich exhibition and visitors are welcomed to explore and touch everything, to open doors and drawers and to rummage through things hidden there. There is also a coffee shop selling several communist-style sandwiches and cakes. Great experience all around!

    We purchased a one way ticket to the top which was approx £2.60. You can buy the tickets from the Tamba Cable Car station. There were no queues and you can pay with card.
    The ride is under 2 minutes to the top, there is a snack shop if you want to buy drinks etc.
    You then take a short walk along a path which leads you to the Brasov sign that you can see from the city centre. There were some amazing views at the top. We decided to walk down through the forest , the trail is easy to follow and it is very cool in the forest going down. It took us around an hour to get back to the bottom, we enjoyed the walk down taking in the sights and noises of the forest.
    A must do if you are in Brasov.
