Photographer's Note

The day after finishing my best half marathon ever...my legs doesn't want to move, so what to do? Sit inside and look at Romania pictures of course!

I can't say that I know Braşov. I was there for 7 hours and didn't even got to touch their own Hollywood sign, but this is my general touristic impression of Braşov as I know it.

It is really the pearl of Romania. My bet is that not many Norwegians, western Europeans or Americans have heard of Braşov. It lies in the shadow of practically every other look-a-like intimate cities and villages in the Alps. Because Braşov really looks like those famous ski destinations, and the historical city center looks more like the center of a small village in the Alps than a city of 230,000 people.

But...there is a difference. Braşov isn't in the Alps. Braşov is far into the Carpatian mountains, which gives the city an eastern touch that you don't find in any Alp village. And no matter how much it looks like, Braşov isn't a small town. There's a lot going on all the time. It's a city of life and it's a colourful city to walk around in. And I must admit that I quite badly underestimated the amount of pictures I would take. The city is absolutely worth a few days of visit!

I'll try to get back to it's unique history with my next photo...
