Council Square, Brasov
(4.3/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Lined with red-roofed medieval merchant houses evoking the region's German heritage, Council Square shows off Black Church, the town's most prominent landmark. You'll find a pillory in the middle of the square, where witches and other misfits were once scorned and punished. The square was named after the 15th-century council house, which is home to the town's history museum. The ancient watchtower, which today is part of the main building, is even older. Take a break at one of the many indoor or outdoor terraces or in the Renaissance Merchant's House, which has been turned into a restaurant. Put Council Square and other Brasov attractions into our Brasov vacation trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • You will get here, no matter what. It is in the center of the touristic part of the town. It is nice, but not really interesting. A lot of people sits near by and there are also restaurants close by.
