Braşov, 1 September

Back out into the open we came to the beautiful plazaŚPiaţa Sfatului. The roof of the bright yellow Council House, Casa Sfatului, glows in the sunshine. In case you wonder where the Pied Piper of Hamelin brought the children he led away with his sweet music, one theory has it that they emerged right in this square. As Transylvania has a large Saxon population, this story may not be far off!
