Situated in the central part of Romania, Braşov is part of the Transylvania region.  Traces of human activity dates back to about 9500 BCE.  The main sites within Braşov are the old city, Biserica Neagră ("The Black Church"), a celebrated Gothic church, Biserica Sf. Nicolae (St. Nicholas Church), a 14th century church, and The Rope Street -- the most narrow street in Romania among other sites.  Braşov is also host to the Golden Stag international music festival.

up from Zarnesti, on the forest path, you would find, once out of the woods, the most miraculous and quiet piece of heaven still known in those places. its a village called Magura, inhabited by couple of dozens of families; in between 2 small mountain chains. there is nothing more to be said about the place, appart from its atmosphere lost somehow in the past centuries. you would be breathless and words woudnt count anymore once there. its stil a wonder how such a place could stil exists, and rests untouched. i guess the inaccessibility of the place has a lot to do with it

If you have any mail to send and it's going to an International destination, you will have difficulty...there is only one post office you can go to and it's not a main one.  Ask around.  If it's a package you're sending, leave it open in case they want to check the contents of it....don't forget to bring tape & a marker.  You will need to fill out forms in Romanian and the staff doesn't speak English.  It WILL cost you a pretty penny...and make sure you have cash.  Just a head's up.

If you are heading to Romania, check out Brasov.  Its a beautiful old town in the Carpathian mountains.  There is lots to do such as tours and excursions.  I did tour of the castles and climbed up to Dracula's real castle, horseback riding in the mountains and got to see wild bears in the city.  I loved every minute of this beautiful place.  Go before they switch to Euro!
