At the Inn on Balaban you'll discover Transylvania's dramatic and calming mountainscape beauty.
Walk novice or expert trails from the Inn's doorstep or visit the nearby Bran Castle that became a country home to Queen Marie during the Inter-War years.
Forty-five minutes away are the ski trails of Poiana Brasov and the restored city sites of ‘Saxon’ Brasov/Kronstadt. Closer yet, explore the restored 13th-century village citadel of Rasnov/Rosenau that endured repeated invasions over its long history.
From its splendid hilltop location, you’ll enjoy the Inn’s local home cooking, the best of Romanian wines, and television-free quiet (wi-fi is available).
In the Inn’s three hand-crafted houses, antique furniture, traditional elegant peasant-styled architecture, and local folklore take you back to the heart of 'old' Romania.
