in the central part of Romania, on the middle way of the
Olt River, the Brasov county is in fact the land of
tourism. It's easier to speak about the places without a
tourist interest than to mention the numberless points
where eye and heart are fascinated by the wonderful
Thanks to its natural landscape as well as to its place
in a central region of tourist interest, the Brasov
county is on the first place in the Romanian tourism.
From here many other tourist zones begin like the spokes
of wheel; the Prahova Valley with its famous Sinaia,
Azuga Busteni Spas, the Bran Rucar Pass; the Olt Valley
and the mountain and hilly zones of the Covasna county.
This is the ideal region where the pleasure tourism,
short holidays, climbing or different sports can be
done. Starting Brasov, Poiana Brasov, Predeal, Bran,
Zarnesti, Rasnov, Vama Buzaului or the town of Victoria,
the mountain can be reached on the first step to tens
kilometers. From here, on railway or roads all points of
tourist interest can be reached in half of a day at the
most. The Brasov county has to be also mentioned for its
numberless historical, architectural, cultural and art
Places of interest in the city include remnants of a
citadel built in 1553, a 14th-century Gothic church, the
13th-century Church of Saint Bartholomew, and the town
hall (1420). Two cultural centers are the Brasov
Regional Library, which has collections of ancient
Romanian manuscripts, and a historical museum housed in
the 15th-century building of the first Romanian school.
The Transylvania University of Brasov (founded in 1971)
is also here.
The Black Church is the largest construction in Gothic
style in Romania, built between 1384-1477, with 89 m
length and 38 m wide; its name (Black Church) comes from

turned its walls black; it is remarkable for its
Renaissance and Baroque elements, a great number of
statues and one of the oldest organ (with 4000 tubes on
75 registers) in our country. A fantastic and very
valuable collection of old oriental rugs / carpets (16th
- 17th Century) is displayed inside the church.
