Our own experience with the Brașov hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus

Black Church view from sightseeing bus Brasov

One sunny July afternoon, we decided to give the hop-on hop-off bus a try – our first time onboard! Exciting, right? Arriving around 5pm at the starting station, we were a bit worried about the crowd. To make sure we snagged seats, we split up and entered through the two doors. Alice, my wife, went up first and secured two seats in the middle of the bus. We couldn’t grab the front rows, but those on the left side turned out to be a great second choice, as there’s no one directly in front.

The day was perfect – partly cloudy, and thankfully, the scorching heat wasn’t too intense even at that hour. The cool breeze from the bus motion made the journey surprisingly enjoyable. While we’ve explored most of Brașov’s incredible spots, seeing them from different angles was a whole new experience. The city appeared even more beautiful from up there.

We had a blast during the trip, snapping countless pictures and promising ourselves to do it again, maybe next year if not in 2023.

Here are our tips for a smooth ride:

  • Aim to arrive 15 minutes before departure for ticket purchase (or use the 24pay app).
  • Brace yourself for a bit of pushing-shoving, and squeezing when you board.
  • Quick reflexes help you grab those top seats.
  • If you’re with someone, split up and use separate doors to increase your seat-finding odds.
  • Keep water handy, as the journey lasts an hour.

Enjoy your ride and happy exploring!
