Stay in Brasov or Bran?

Jump to last reply

We're booking accommodations for our June trip to Romania. We will have 3 nights in the Brasov/Bran area. We are driving from the painted monasteries in the northeast down to Brasov/Bran and after our 3 nights here we will continue on to Peonari Fortress. We plan to spend one day seeing Brasov and immediate surroundings (Black Church, Prejmer, Harman fortified church), one day visiting Sinaia for Peles Palace and Rasnov on the way back, and then one morning in Bran before moving on to Poenari.

We've looked for accommodations and have found suitable places in both Brasov and Bran. Which one would people suggest we stay at? Which is prettier in the surroundings? I realize if we stay in Bran we have a slightly longer drive on our long drive day from the northeast and we'll have to back track on day one, but we'd already be in Bran for the last day. So I'm fine with the distance either way and am just wondering which has better places to eat, which might allow my husband a little time in the morning or evening for landscape photos, etc...

Thanks for the input.
