BRASOV
After Risnov we drove to Brasov (30 min), Bran Castle is really close to Risnov (20 min) but it's closed on Monday so we planned to go on Saturday.
Once in Brasov we bought something for dinner in a Carrefour (Carrefour is for rich there because is not cheap at all for Romania) before seeking for a hotel to stay, we found 2 quite expensive and finally we rested in a centric hotel not expensive at all but old.
Brasov's downtown is nice, clean and modern with the famous Black Church (not as nice as I imagined) and the beautiful central square.

As soon as you are in Brasov you can feel the young atmosphere of the city, it was Monday night (traditionally quite everywhere) and terraces were full of youth. Unfortunately, once we got ready to go out was too late and most of people had left terraces to go home. Despite the low number of people we enjoyed ourselves playing billiards in an Irish pub with friendly stuff. For sure during the weekend you can have fun easily.
During night Brasov is nice (with the name floating illuminated on the top of the mountain) but is even better during a sunny day like that!! It's a dynamic a city closer to the western side than the eastern one.

Black and white towers, piata unirii, protection walls, Black Church…

but the most amazing attraction is to take the telepheric and up the mountain towards the letters BRASOV (Hollywood's style).

The view is fantastic from there… spectacular photos were taken from the terrace.
