Brasov, aka ‘Crown City’, is a beautiful Saxon city founded in the 13th century and is a tourist city par excellence surrounded on three sides by mountains. In the Market Square surrounded by Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical houses stands the Black Church, the symbol of the city, named “black” after a fire, is considered the biggest religious edifice in Gothic style in Transylvania. Inside the church is one of the biggest music organs in Europe, with 4,000 pipes. Our knowledgeable guide Radu took us on a walking tour of this medieval city.
