City of the Teutonic Knights Brasov

City founded by a German order of knights

The German name of Brasov, Kronstadt (Crown City) is derived from its beautiful location at the foot of Tâmpa peak in the Southern Carpathians – it could also be called ” the Romanian Salzburg”. The city was built at the intersection of old merchant roads to Asia Minor, the Adriatic Sea to Central Europe and the Balkans.

The Baroque Town Hall stands In the center of the city, in a triangular square. Very close to it we find the 15th century Black Church / Biserica Neagră, the landmark of Brasov. In the three-nave Gothic church we can admire the largest mechanical organ in the country,  with 4000 pipes and 76 stops. Also worth mentioning is the collection of Anatolian prayer rugs which can be seen here.

Other attractions include the Gothic St. Bartholomew’s Church and the Orthodox church of St. Nicholas / Biserica Sf. Nicolae. At Easter, the festival “Junii Brasovului” (Youngsters of Brasov)  is celebrated and in August it hosts the International Music Festival “Cerbul de Aur” (The Golden Stag).

Just a few miles away and at almost 1000 m altitude there is the winter sports center Poiana Braşov.
