Brasov City View
Brasov City View
The top of Mount Tampa provides a stunning view of the mountains. Brasov's original defense fortress was built on this mount but, when Vlad Tepes (the Impaler) attacked Brasov in 1459-1460, the citadel was dismantled, and 40 merchants were impaled on top of Mount Tampa. Walking to the top takes about an hour (red triangles) from the cable car station or yellow triangles from Aleea Brediceanu.
