Brasov is a significant city in Transylvania with an interesting and well-preserved historic core. With 290000 inhabtants it is also one of the largest cities in Romania. The city has been settled since prehistoric times, but started developing in the 13th century, when the Hungarian king invited German colonists to settle and develop the area. As a result, the centre of Brasov has the character and look of a medieval German town.
Brasov has a beautiful historic core centered around Piața Sfatului (council square), a large square surrounded by picturesque rows of houses. A significant part of the historic core has been converted to pedestrian areas where tourists can find many restaurants, cafes and shops.
