So much more than just the gateway to Dracula country, Brasov is a well preserved hidden gem, set amongst the romantic countryside of the Carpathian mountains. The scenery is truly spectacular and the best thing of all is that you only have to share it with a few locals, as few tourists venture here. The ones that do are rewarded with fairytale castles, pretty squares, and grand Baroque architecture to explore. The surrounding geography and traditional agricultural methods used by local farmers (i.e., no pesticides) mean that there is an abundance of organic produce available for your eating pleasure. Plus fresh spring water straight from the mountains to quench your thirst. If you are touring Transylvania and visiting that castle, make sure you don’t overlook the hidden treasures of bewitching Brasov.
