A Winter Stay in Brașov, Romania

March 14, 2017

Romania, Grand Teleferic Hotel via Find Us LostFor our first day in Romania we arrived in Bucharest and headed straight for the city of Brașov in Translyvania. In February, Brașov is transformed into a winter wonderland with layers of fresh snow dotting the rooftops of pastel-colored buildings around the square. We stayed just up the hill from Brașov at the Teleferic Grand Hotel, which sits amongst a small ski town, Poiana Brașov, and a number of surrounding hotels that draw small crowds during ski season.

The best part of being just above Brașov was waking up to the forest views right outside our window. On our first morning (right after fresh snowfall the day before) we peeked outside in the early morning to see groups of skiers heading out for the day. By the time we went down for breakfast, we had the place to ourselves! We were quick to fall into a morning routine of leisurely breakfasts before setting out to explore the beautiful landscapes and nearby towns of Transylvania. One of my favorite evenings was taking a horse-drawn carriage ride just before sunset, and then driving down the road just in time to see a pink sky over Brașov.

Our whole experience in Romania was magical, and staying in Brașov was definitely the highlight of our trip! I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys visiting the lesser-known towns of Europe.
