This is the place where everybody meets. The fountain, museums, restaurants even a KFC you can enjoy here. The old Orthodox Cathedral and The Black Church across it will expose their beauty and secrets. If you are lucky you ll listen even a concert in the Black Church.

The view of this place is certainly one for the books.Winter time is best due to the eye-taking decorations,but summer will do just as well.The old city remains faithfull to its old architecture and intimate little streets.

Council Square is an interesting city-centre square. I was there as part of a large group on a cold day in the afternoon. It was minus 10 degrees Celsius or about but the sky was blue and sunny. The city hall and the walking streets around was the main area we took a walk around for an hour or so... More

Very nice square,especially at Christmas time period when in the center of the area there is a huge Christmas tree, small kiosks that sell warm wine and sweets.The surroundings of the mountains and ski lift is fantastic.

We had visited this place after Christmas which is so colorful. Christmas market has many local goods, while surrounding area has several shops. Black church is also in close distance.

As our tour guide said, everything that happens in Brașov happens here. A big square, with restaurants, bars and shops, beautiful buildings and amazing views. There was a quite nice Christmas market when we visited, as well as a very big, beautiful Christmas tree. It's impossible to miss if you visit Brașov!
