Rope Street - Strada Sforii, Brasov

3.5
#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Brasov
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
Squeeze through the corridor of Rope Street - Strada Sforii, one of the narrowest streets in Europe. First mentioned in 17th-century documents, the street was originally constructed as a connection between two other streets. The 80 m (260 ft) corridor was used for many years as a passage for firemen. Nearly every visitor can spread his arms and touch the walls, since the broadest part of the street is 132 cm (52 in) wide. Today the street is a lovers' meeting place and a favorite spot for tourists and photographers.

  • It's the most tight street in Europe from what I know. Not so special but good to visit when you are in Brasov.  more »
  • Went to take a look, because it is very near the town square and the black church; for the rest ... nothing special!  more »
  • Brasov, originally designed as an access for fighting fires, but given the name because it is narrow as a rope!  more »

Where to stay in Brasov
