About the tour

Some say that Brasov is the most visited city of Siebenburgen (the German name for Transylvania) for being very close to the famous Bran Castle. But it is Brasov's old town area, the impressive Black Church and the beautiful landscape of the surrounding mountains that make the city very special. Founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1200's and settled by the Saxons ever since, Brasov city still has one of the best preserved Old Towns in Transylvania. We invite you to join our tour and find out also about the real history that links the medieval Brasov with Vlad the Impaler (aka Dracula).

Super interesting tour and great guide! As an American who has done a lot of actual travel throughout Western Europe, and had just begun exploring Eastern Europe (Bulgaria and Poland,) and becoming enamored with it, I love these Heygo tours to Eastern European countries. Fascinating.
