Route
“Rope Street is a street in Brasov that has an average width of only 123 centimeters is considered the narrowest street in Europe. If you walk through one of the two above, only one indicator with an arrow shows you passing through an intersection. Otherwise, you will not even notice it. Street history is just as exciting. It was built in the seventeenth century and was originally designed to facilitate firemen's access if needed. The street measures at its narrowest point, only 111 centimeters, and the largest one only 135 centimeters. ”

Nature
“Truly spectacular hike, it is worth the effort. Located just outside Brasov (you can reach it by car or bus), this canyon has recently been repaired and is again accessible to visitors. You have to walk for approx. 30 min. from the main road to reach it. A little bit difficult for small children. There is also a tiroliana available to go back down.”

Tunnel
“The Black tower is an 11 meter high massive tower with a glass roof constructed in 1995. It was built in the XIVth century and survived two fires caused by lightning. After the first fire (1599) the tower was named The Black Tower. The 2 m high entrance of the tower could be approached only by ladder. The link to the castle was an underground tunnel and a bridge. The tower was built for defense against enemies. The last time it functioned as a watchtower was in 1756 during the plague epidemic. Today the tower houses temporary exhibitions.”

“The Council Square (Piața Sfatului in Romanian, former Marktplatz in German, Főtér or Tanács tér in Hungarian) is located in the historic centre of Brașov, Romania.[1] It obtained its right to hold markets in 1520, but it has been the place for weekly and annual markets since 1364, being visited by merchants from the country and abroad.[citation needed] It is surrounded by 18th-19th century houses, most of which are historical monuments. A pillory, in the middle of the square, was used as a means for public humiliation, punishment and scorn.[when?][citation needed] Witches were also punished here, but the head of the shoemaker guild, Stefan Stenert, who opposed the entry of the Austrian army into Brașov, was also beheaded here in 1688. Until 1892, there were two wells in the square. The most important building in the square is the former Council House (Casa Sfatului), which was built in 1420 and is located in the middle of the square. This now houses the Brașov County Museum of History. Around the main square is the picturesque pedestrian-only Republicii street, the Black Church, former Council House, indoor and outdoor terraces and restaurants, the Orthodox Church, Casa Mureșenilor museum, Museum of Urban Civilization, and Hirscher House. A local tradition holds that the children that the Pied Piper of Hamelin (Germany) sent underground appeared near this Brașov square.[2] In the communist era, the Council Square was named "Piața 23 August" (23 August Square)”
