How Far from?
Located in Transylvania, Brasov was once a communist city, and many of its inhabitants fled to Germany after the Second World War to escape the regime. In the 50’s Brasov’s official name was Orasul Stalin, named after Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. In 1960, when Romania’s affiliation to Moscow weakened, it became known as Brasov once again.

There are many historical attractions for sightseers, amongst them the Black Church, a Gothic building constructed in 1477. Saint Nicholas Church dates back to the 14th century and is in perfect condition, and the city centre also contains the Jewish Synagogue and First Romanian School.

Adventurous travelers won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to visit Bran Castle, commonly known as ‘Dracula’s Castle’.
