IntroductionThis Transylvania city, now a UNESCO World Heritage site, merits a full day to see its many sights. Among them are the massive Evangelical Church (it houses the tomb of Dracula's son), the 18th-century Bruckenthal Art Museum, the Museum of History and the fascinating Museum of Hunting (guns and trophies). Allow some time to walk through the city's square and parks. If you're especially interested in folk art, visit the Museum of Folk Civilization. Nature lovers can easily spend up to four more days in the area, taking excursions to the Olt River region (beautiful wooded scenery) and the Fagaras Mountain region south of town (hiking trails and huts at several altitudes). Also, each August, the city plays host to the international folk-music festival Cantecele Muntilor. 70 mi/110 km west of Brasov.
