The Braşov Sign in Braşov, Transylvania: Romania’s Hollywood Sign
When in Transylvania, you'll likely notice the Braşov sign perched up on the hill of Braşov. Get some exercise and spend a half day hiking up and down. You'll be able to find the trail just by walking up to the hill from wherever you are in town. The hike is moderate, but know if you're coming fresh off the Hike From Buşteni To Babele, that you will probably feel this one also. Enjoy the views of Braşov from the highest point around.

A view up the mountain towards Babele from outside the Buşteni train station
Romania is not a frequented hot spot for travelers. However, its easy to kill a week or two visiting this Eastern European country. If you're a hiker in Romania, you can't leave without hiking from Buşteni to Babele in the Bucegi Mountains of Central Romania. Likely the 2 most popular destinations in Romania are the capital Bucharest, and Transylvania, the home of Dracula. Taking the train between the 2 leads you through Buşteni.
