Things to do in Brasov
There are plenty of activities in Brasov from exploring the history and ancient architecture, hiking up to the Brasov sign and visiting ‘Dracula’s Castle’.
I spent my first day in Braşov exploring the Old Town and tucking into some tasty local food (actually, breakfast wasn’t that local, soz). You can easily see Braşov in a day before spending your second day on a day trip to Dracula’s Castle.
