Welcome to Brasov's Old Town! And what better way to start your exploration than in the city's Council Square where merchants from all over the citadel commence and show their wares. This is also where witch trials and corporal punishments were done when it used to have a Pillar of Infamy, not to mention beheadings. But don't be creeped out, this is the liveliest and busiest place in Brasov (except for the malls). It won't be hard to imagine, just pretend there's no Starbucks or KFC in the area. There is a council house in the middle of the Square with a clocktower and the year 1420 is written on it. Inside is the County History Museum, please do enter if you'd like. It's open from April to September 2021: 10a - 6p, October 2021 - March 2022: 9a - 5p. And if you want to skip it, it's cool too. You won't really miss out as the Council Square is big enough to spend at least 2 to 3 hours just soaking everything in - not to mention have a drink or a full meal as well. This is also a mini shopping area. You can find bookstores, clothing stores, barber shops, banks, pharmacies, tattoo parlors - name it, they have it. You don't even have to worry if you still don't have money in the local currency (RON), there's a money exchange place in every corner. These days, the Council Square is the home of the yearly Christmas Market, which attracts tourists from all over the world. Lots of them. If you get tired from all the walking, you can just sit in front of the water fountain and watch kids chase the birds away. Photo credit: Dan Novac (Unsplash.com)
