Romania may not have made it into the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but that doesn’t mean locals won’t be cheering on the matches. Here’s where our local Brasov tour guides will be gathering in their city to watch the World Cup.
Their name may just say hockey, but that’s not the only sports event you can watch at the Hockey Pub. They have an awesome menu, fun crowd and a long tradition of English-speaking quiz nights every Tuesday — all of which makes the Hockey Pub the locals’ favourite place to watch sports events.
Deane’s Irish Pub
Deane’s is the oldest bar in town, and a great place for some weekend dancing. They also often host special events like concerts or live theatre plays — and, of course, offer a great place for watching events like the FIFA World Cup. Plus, they have the best beer and burgers to accompany the daily broadcasts.
Anywhere on Republicii Street
The main pedestrian street in Brasov’s centre comes to life with some pretty cool terraces once spring arrives, with locals gathering on them through summer until late autumn. And the best thing is that all of them feature special media equipment for sports events like the Olympic games and, of course, the World Cup.
Your Brasov tour will start with a stop in Piata Sfatului, Brasov’s picturesque main square where you will be offered a covrig, a popular and delicious Romanian street food that is similar to a Turkish simit and looks like a pretzel.
