Trip Planner: Europe / Romania / Transylvania / Central Romania / Brasov County / Brasov / Council Square
Lined with red-roofed medieval merchant houses evoking the region's German heritage, Council Square shows off Black Church, the town's most prominent landmark. You'll find a pillory in the middle of the square, where witches and other misfits were once scorned and punished. The square was named after the 15th-century council house, which is home to the town's history museum. The ancient watchtower, which today is part of the main building, is even older. Take a break at one of the many indoor or outdoor terraces or in the Renaissance Merchant's House, which has been turned into a restaurant.

Main, and quite large, square of the city. Place with outstanding architecture and a couple of great restaurants. more »
The square with its church and the houses and shops surrounding it breath an authentic atmosphere. Beautiful spot where you can stroll around in a very relaxed way and turn into all the nice streets..... more »
