Brasov, Romania

The Black Chuch

Churches on the Main Square

We spent a night in Brasov, Transylvania's second largest city. According to local legend, when the Pied Piper led the children from Germany, they vanished underground and emerged in Brasov's main square. For the record, we didn't see that many kids in the square.

We stayed at the Aro Palace, in part because the guide book described it as "ludicrously mafioso." For the record, we didn't see anything even remotely mafioso, but the hotel was very nice.

The Old Town's most famous landmark is the Black Church, which took almost a century to complete. For the record, it wasn't all that black.
