Places to visit near Poiana Brasov:
Brașov is located at the foot of Mount Tâmpa, a small mountain with a height of 950 meters. The route that starts from the park at the foot of Tâmpa, is a very easy one to travel and lasts 45 minutes, which makes it accessible to a very diverse range of tourists. The view next to the place where it says “HOLLYWOOD OF ROMANIA” makes every serpentine worth crossing.
THE BLACK CHURCH
In 1689, a huge fire that covered a large part of the city of
Brașov managed to affect the patron saint of Saint Mary, an imposing building, in
fact, the largest sacred building in Romania. Following the event, the name of the
place of worship was changed to the Black Church, as an allusion to the color it
acquired as a result of the fire.Inside is the largest collection of oriental rugs, and a
6-ton bell, the largest in Romania.
At the end of the Schei neighborhood, between Tâmpa and Stejerișul Mare, is the Pietrele lui Solomon leisure area. As it was called by some tourists who were captivated by the beauty of the place, a corner of heaven, the area is dotted with tables, benches, bridges over the river in the center of the gorge, and last but not least people and pets. All this at the base of natural climbing walls, so look out for amateur climbers.
SEVEN STAIRS CANYON
Located in the western part of the Piatra Mare massif, the Seven Stairs Canyon is excavated in Jurassic limestone by the waterfalls of the Valea Șurii brook.
