Unfortunately after seeing Peles Castle, this one kind of pales in comparison. However, I quickly became fascinated with the doors. All of the hinges and handles and knockers were just so ornate and pretty. Must have doors like this! The wood carvings in these castles are absolutely incredible!
Also, many of the doors (and the doors of the cottages we saw in the village museum in Bucharest) have these lovely traditional paintings.
One of the rooms had these fun shields with different emblems or crests on them. This first one was my favorite and we ended up seeing it in different parts of Brasov as well.
So our driver totally screwed us and we didn’t make it back to Brasov until hours later than we should have, meaning we only got about 2 hours to walk around the city. Shame, since it’s such a cute little town.
The Black Church is one of the best known symbols and historical buildings of Brasov.
In several of these cities youll find lots of old grandpas playing chess or rummikub in the parks. I love that!
Brasov has nice streets, lined with beautiful buildings and outside eating.
Here’s the big main square. We saw these guys above walking around and there was a little band playing with other festivities as well. Must have been some kind of festival?
After our quick stroll around town, we met up with our new Swedish friend Ludwig (he stayed at our hostel and went to Bran Castle with us) for dinner. And then we hopped on our night train to Budapest…
