Sport and Recreation


Sport is part of everyone’s life.

Brasov has an old tradition in sports, at the end of nineteenth century the first sport associations were established here.

Further, sporting and recreational activities provide opportunities for fun, relaxation, self-awareness, personal achievements and development as an individual or as a member of a group.

The rich landscape makes out of Brasov an ideal place for alternative sports such as trekking, climbing, skiing, skating, mountain biking, riding, golf and rafting.

The Postavaru mountain is the best ski destination in Romania, and Poiana Brasov resort is just at the bottom of the hill.

The Piatra Craiului Mountain, just 25 km away from Brasov, was declared natural reservation. One can admire here the rare mountain vegetation or can escalate its spectacular peaks.

Also other sports can be practiced in Brasov in different sport clubs: football, basketball, volleyball, rugby, cycling, judo, swimming, tennis etc.
