In Brasov, also a previous Saxon colony, there is the narrowest street in Romania. Besides this curiosity, the city offers a pleasant square which can be reached by a pedestrian street populated by numerous cafes.

Nearby there is the “Biserica Neagra”, the Black Church, which owes its color to a fire.

After the city tour with a visit to the fortress situated on a bristling hill, the next day I go to Bran, famous for its castle.

It was built by the Teutonic Knights, but his fame is due to Bram Stoker, who settled here his famous novel.

But, surprise … The principe Vlad the Impaler (so called because of his nice attitude to impalement) didn`t ever owned this castle. Yes, it is a fake, like the vampires.

Cheers, attempting to hide my dog-teeth…

    Hey Niko!!
    The narrow street reminded me the squares in sibiu.. Is there Sibiu? You are lucky.The weather seems very sunny in your picture. While we are trying to reach Bran Castle, it was -13 degree celcius. There was even ice on the stairs of the castle.I wanted to see Romania in summer:))What about peles castle? It was in sinaia, it was also very atractive.Did you see there?
