... Around the corner was Pelisor Castle, which in reality was more of a luxurious manor, that featured as the summer residence for the Prince. Doing a self-tour of the interior was quite confusing, the the decorating style constantly swapped between classical late-medieval style and a tacky 1960's theme. Having overstayed at the various castles, we rushed to Brasov to stay in our first AirBnB accommodation. This turned out to ...

The carved wooden altar is a masterpiece and makes even the unfaithful want to sit in the front pew to digest it all.

... the Piatra Craiului National Park to the 'alpine' village of Magura; and we visited the 13th Century fortress in Raşnov. We also climbed Mt Tampa, did lots of wandering and sight seeing around the Old Town of Braşov and visited the memorial to the 69 local victims of the 1989 revolution in Bucharest.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCasa Cristina Brasov
Casa Christina is an immaculately kept guesthouse in the very south of Brasov. We were fortunate to be offered one of the the top floor rooms with very modern and well equipt bathroom. The room has a sitting area with corner picture windows overlooking the city. It is very restful. We planned to stay 2 nights and extended it to 3. Cost is 140 RON ($45 Cdn) with a very satisfying breakfast for 15 RON pp. Owners are extremely helpful. Service is excellent. Would highly recommend this lovely spot.
