Arriving to Brasov, Romania via train in the afternoon after exploring the breathtaking Peles Castle, we checked into our Airbnb located conveniently in the Old Town, and walked to the Supermarket. With only 1 1/2 days to explore, we were anxious to get started.
The main square called Piata Sfatului, is full of life and beauty! The large dark brown building in the background is called the Black Church and is over 500 years old.
Children and birds are wonderful subjects to photograph!
The fountain at the square seems somewhat modern, but contrasts nicely with the historical architecture surrounding it.
I felt like I was dropped in a photographer’s paradise!
One of the skinniest streets in Europe is in Brasov! Its name is Strada Sforii aka Rope Street and is 4 foot wide. It was originally built as an access for firemen.
The locals are friendly!
A beautiful bride allowed me to photograph her…
The following morning we took a 45 minute bus ride to Bran Castle (aka Count Dracula’s Castle)…which I’ll save for next time!
