Braov

The municipality Braov is situated in the center of the country, in the Braov basin, at the foot of the Tampa mountain, at an altitude of 550-650 m above sea level, at a distance of 200 km from the capital of the country, Bucharest. Maybe it is the most important city in the country from the point of view of tourism. Today it counts 308.000 inhabitants and it has been a municipality since 17 February 1968.

The city is divided into two distinct component parts: the zone with baroque influence that lies at the foot of the Tampa and the Postavaru mountains and the large area of blocks of flats and factories. The main tourist attraction is the old city—the Schei section of the city, still full of magic where you will find lots of old buildings and objects especially of religious importance. 

Braov as an important industrial, cultural and business center, is also a traditional university center. Due to the high number of historical and artistic monuments in its area, Braov is one of the most important tourist centers in the country.
