Exploring The Brasov Fortress/Restaurant

By Darren Alff on - Download my FREE bike tour starter guide!

I took some time today to hike up to the small fortress located just north of downtown Brasov, Romania and snap the photos above. I thought I might have to pay to get into the place, but the door was wide open and I was able to walk around freely without anyone asking me what I was doing there. As it turns out, the fortress isn’t much of a tourist attraction at all, but a massive old building that has been converted into a restaurant/hang out/party place. I imagine that they rent the fortress/restaurant out for special occasions, etc.
