Why Brasov, Romania

The Transylvania area of Romania is a treasure trove of unfamiliar destinations. Most just think of Dracula when they hear of Transylvania, but the region has so much more to offer and Brasov, pronounced “Brashov” is one of those places.

Hire A Local

This is the preferred method and the one I used. They know the winding road, so that make it all easier. JayWay Boutique Travel provides this level of service and took care of all the details for me.  If you don’t want to use all the services of JayWay, its worth it to get a Guide once you arrive in Brashov. Having a Guide made the trip so much more memorable.

Where To Stay

There are local hotels and some chains available. The local ones are highly recommended as they give you a taste of Romania, but you can take your pick.

I stayed at Hotel Casa Wagner right on the Main Square.
