Rope Street - Strada Sforii, Brasov

3.5
#3 of 18 in Historic Sites in Brasov
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 only wide enough for a person, hence the name. It will make for a great opportunity for photos and since it's located in old centre, won't be too far to get to.  more »

  • Interesting narrow city road, if I know correctly it was built for firemen. Worth including it in your city walk.
  • Must visit!
  • All who pass by there will name to the walls with scie marker, pen or give up scrijelesc. Fell into several parts and plaster. It remains an interesting place to visit.
