BRASOV in 360 | Top 3 Sights in a half-day walk in downtown Brasov | 360 travel video by Gaba_VR


Let’s take a look around in the city centre of Brasov! On the trails of the Transylvanian Dracula myths,
we are spending the morning in Brasov, in the city near the castle of Bran. And what does the city centre have for travelers like us?
Come with me and I’ll show you in 360 degrees. The most characteristic building
of Brasov’s main square is the old Council House, but we also have the best view from here
to the Tampa Hill with the huge Brasov sign. In the 80s, the square became a pedestrian zone,
with monument buildings all around us, and with great restaurants and bars on the street. And in one corner of the square, looking between
the houses, we can see the famous Black Church, too. The gothic Lutheran Church
is the largest church in Romania. It was named after the fire of the late 17th century,
when its walls were covered with black soot. After being almost completely destroyed
several times in history, the building finally got its present look
around year 2000. Next to the building we find the statue of Honterus, who was the first Lutheran pastor of the church,
recommended by Luther itself. Unfortunately, the bronze plaques on the base of statue
have been damaged several times over the past 20years But today they are guarded by cameras. It’s just a few minutes’ walk
from the largest temple in the country, and we soon find something
in the other end of the spectrum. But on the way,
we can also discover the wildlife of the city. There are many cats in the windows of old houses. Then about 350 feet from the Statue of Honterus
we find one of the narrowest streets in Europe, with a small medieval-like plaque around the corner. Following the sign, we can enter
the small cobblestone path through a narrow gate. With a width around 4 feet, Strada Sforii
is considered to be the third narrowest street in Europe, with a moody “tourist message board”
and modern paintings on the walls. This narrow alley between the houses
had important protective role in the Middle Ages, and then it was neglected for a long time, until
its tourist appeal was discovered in the last decades. And it seems that no matter how high a window is,
there’s always a cat on the ledge. These are the three attractions in Brasov that we must
see on a half-day walk while travelling through the city. In addition, taking a cable car by the hill and discovering
ancient walls and gates can be also interesting. If you have already visited Brasov,
leave a comment below about your favourite sight. However now, we’re heading towards
the Dracula Castle in Bran, so if you don’t wanna miss that tour with me,
