Brasov Candlelight Tour
From US$13.88
Low Price Guarantee
Explore one of Transylvania’s best-preserved Saxon towns by candlelight on this evening walking tour of Brasov. Get a nighttime perspective on the medieval city center as you visit must-see landmarks, such as the Gothic Black Church, Catherine’s Gate, and the old Council Square, with a guide. Join the local bar scene with a stop to sip Romanian beer at a nearly 600-year-old pub.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in Brasov’s Council Square, the heart of the old city center that’s within easy walking distance of most hotels. Learn about the town’s history as you admire the baroque buildings that line this central gathering place. Founded in 1235 by Teutonic knights, Brasov is one of Romania’s best examples of a fortified Saxon town, and much of its medieval character is retained in narrow streets and carefully restored buildings.
See historic highlights, including the Gothic Black Church, charred by a fire, and the entrance known as Catherine's Gate to the old city. Get a new perspective on these lamplit monuments as you safely tour under the cover of darkness. Take part in the lively local pub scene during a stop at one of Brasov’s oldest and most atmospheric bars, where you can order from a wide selection of Romanian beer and bar snacks (own expense).
