Around Brasov | Romania

With our hostel being so new, the staff were really trying to make our stay memorable. Breakfast was delicious, and we were not even allowed to do our own dishes. Quite the change from most hostel! And the view – what a view.

After breakfast we walked towards a church we had seen in the distance, moving away from the city and the guidebook’s map. The streets were mostly quiet, and it felt that we had this cute little part of town all to ourselves. We finally made it to the church, which also had an atmospheric cemetery. I couldn’t resist taking photos of it – I do find cemeteries ridiculously photogenic!

Later in the afternoon we headed back out to check out the main square, and the famous Black Church. The church was closed for the day, but still stood quite impressively in all of its Gothic grandeur.

    Romania definitely has a tiny bit of a creepy vibe to me (sorry, Romanians!). But your photos are starting to make it look so alluring. I’m looking forward to more!

      Once you get there, there really isn’t anything creepy about it! It’s just a really, really quaint and awesome country. I think it’s all made up stories to keep Romania one of the best-kept secrets of Eastern Europe!
