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.

We set off on the 30 min walk into town, planning to get a taxi back. The old town is lovely ...
... Instead of going to the actual castle, Raluca, Don, Stella, Heidi and I eat cake and coffee at the cafe there. It's expensive for Romania but nice. Then Raluca and I go shopping but don't end up buying anything.
After that we go to Casa Nostra(Our house or home that would translate to) and I get to try sarmale. It's sour cabbage stuffed with pork and it is amazing-if I haven't covered it already, I LOVE Romanian food. I could eat it all day ...
... torture and witch trials were all commonplace across all of Europe so Vlad the Imapler was just doing what every ruler was also doing at the time. When Bram Stoker wrote about Count Dracula in 1898, Romania was still a fairly mysterious country with lots of forests, wolves, bears and fog so Vlad/Dracula just added to the legend. Vlad was from the province of Wallachia but Transylvania sounded better. I'd also heard somewhere that Vlad was anaemic and ...
... background. The building dates from 1477, when it replaced an older church (demolished around 1385). It acquired the name after being blackened by smoke from the 1689 great fire.
Again out the window and a little to the right, the town square belltower. The bells worked just fine. Every fifteen minutes to mark ...
... hulk of some communist-era manufacturing plant. We realized that in North America and Western Europe we do a lot better at hiding these sorts of nasty, ugly industries. But it makes sense that in former communist countries these types of facilities were a show-case of advancement (at least in the 50’s and 60’s).
Brasov was a lovely surprise. This city has so much history that it could be overwhelming. Just some ...
