“Old world at its best ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

I was in Brasov in June and there was always something going on in the square. The umbrella covered tables of all the restaurants, the verndors and tehir local wares on the weekend, movie screenings at night, and of course the shops and pubs along each of the piazzos leading to the square. Loved it.

“beautiful and busy square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

The square is surrounded by the mountain. There are many people walking around the square and the atmosphere is pretty cozy.

“Eating and drinking in Brasov”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

This is the main town square of Brasov which is the location for many cafes, restaurants and bars. Piata Sfatului must be one of the best places on earth to sit in a cafe and engage in a spot of people watching.

Pizza and a couple of drinks came out at about £10 which isn't bad for a cafe right on the square.
