Council Square, Brasov

(4.3/5 based on 900+ 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.

  • Sunteti niste retardati cu raliurile voastre, si cine le-a dat autorizatie sa organizeze. Ati speriat ursii pana-n postavaru si-napoi. Retarzilor... poluare fonica de cel mai josnic grad...
