The region of Transylvania in Romania is becoming more and more popular lately. People from all over the world can’t wait to explore its stunning countryside, imposing castles and medieval towns. However, the majority of travellers make it as far as Brasov and, perhaps, Sighisoara, overlooking yet another gem that should be part of everyone’s itinerary: Sibiu. In this travel guide we will show you all the fantastic things to do in Sibiu, one of the most elegant and off the beaten path places to visit in Romania.

Located at the very heart of Romania, Brasov is perhaps the country’s most well-known destination next to Bucharest. For good reason. Brasov is a beautiful picturesque city and admiring its charms is well worth a trip on its own. That said, Brasov also serves as an excellent base to explore the breathtaking Transylvania region. So, without further ado, read on and find out what to do in Brasov, one of the prettiest places to visit in Romania, in 2 days.

One of the main reasons we decided to plan a trip to Romania in the first place was the country’s castles. The idea of going castle hunting in Transylvania fascinated us. Bran Castle or Castelul Bran, one of the best castles in Romania, was definitely among the ones we wanted to visit. Since picturesque Brasov was the first stop on our Transylvania road trip, a half-day trip from Brasov to Bran Castle was one of the very first things we enjoyed in Romania.
