    Lots of cafes with English-speaking staff and great Wi-Fi. Very close to Sibiu and Bucharest but also the mountains, with lots of stuff to do during the winter season.

    I have tried Brasov for 1 month in August. I was desperate to find any place that was not run down by tourists. There is virtually almost no cafe that is suitable to work from as they are overcrowded by hordes of tourists, families, people drinking. I had a hard time. I booked in advance for 1 entire month in light of other reviews I saw, but this was my mistake. I would not recommend this for someone who is trying to be productive. The atmosphere is way too much 'vacation' style and reminds me of Disneyland. If I had to redo it I would much more consider other cities in Romania. Bucharest looks quite great. Unfortunately, I did not see other cities in this country yet.

    If you love hiking Brasov is like heaven. The mountains nearby have a widespread network of trails. Also it becomes a ski spot in the winter. Architecture is also nice locals are friendly, prices are low, English is spoken and Romanian is a very interesting language, by the way.

  • Amazing location for the adventure nomad. If you love mountain sports it is hard to find a better spot. Romania has one of the best internet providers you could want in Digi. Be careful where you stay anything up towards Poiana Brasov will not have wired internet, anything in the square will be great and super cheap. This is a great spot for anyone in the summer but def rough in the winter. We did 4 months in Bucharest and moved up here after we were visiting every weekend. If you plan to travel Europe and see all of Romania this is a very central location to accomplish both of those.

  • Brasov is very beautiful, and interesting city, with a huge mountain, "Tampa" near city. Center of city, it is a museum, churches, buildings, restaurants, good infrastructure, is not very expensive, quality of life, is high, very much tourists, of all countries. Brasov it is a treasure, Romanian treasure. Brasov it is amazing. Brasov, is on the top!

  • Brasov is absolutely beautiful. Not a ton to do socially and certainly no big nomad community. But the food is amazing, cost of living is cheap, and the parks and mountains surrounding you make it worth visiting! You can literally hike a gorgeous mountain walking about 5 minutes south of the old city center. It's also the most central location to visit nearby castles and national parks. You can buy tickets online and the trains are easy to navigate to get to places like Peles Castle in an hour or so. Highly recommend staying here a couple weeks! I hope to return.

    Brasov looks like any historic German city but Brasov is a resort city, the entire old town is only catered to tourism. There's nothing special about it.
