Brasov (Kronstadt/Brassó) The Essential
Recommended
This ancient mercantile city founded by the Saxons in the early 13C is Romania's second city. Its cultural and economic peak was during the 16C when it became a major centre for Humanist thinking thanks to Johannes Honterus (1498-1549), who brought Lutheranism to Transylvania. The busy little streets in its historic centre are the ideal backdrop for a stroll; they converge on the peerless Council Square and the Black Church. Also worth seeing nearby are fortified churches and old fortresses.
