    Galeria Corona (Hirscher House)
    1 more image

    Brasov's main shopping street is the pedestrianised Republicii Street.

    It starts at the northeastern end of the Town Hall Square (Piata Sfatului) and leads towards the Central Park "Nicolae Titulescu".

    You find all sorts of shops here, including clothes, books, souvenirs and even art. More shops can be found on the Mursenilor Street.

    Also a visit of the stylish Galeria Corona shouldn't be missed, although you probably won't buy anything here.

    The gallery houses many exclusive and exquisite Romanian designer boutiques. A free toilet and the Turabo Cafe can be found here as well.

    The Galeria Corona is located in the historic Hirscher House at the Town Hall Square. The history of this former trade center dates back to the 16th century.

    Star department store: Your one-stop shop

    From clothes to luggage to aftershave, Star is a multi-level department store that has it all. Prices are higher than other stores, but convenience is its main selling point. If you need a battery for your camera or a video cassette for your camcorder, you can find it at Star.

    Shopping in Brasov

    This is the shopping street of Brasov.
    You can buy all sort of stuff here, from shoes to clothes to antiques or art.

    Something I bought here is some Gerovital products. A brand of Romanian made beauty products that are made only of natural ingredients. Very reasonably priced and you can find them in any Pharmacy.
    Good option if you run out of moisturiser!
