“This alley is certainly almost as thin as a cord. Built as a corridor for firemen in the 15th century, it’s just 43 inches wide at its skinniest point. Snuggle through it to find more of old town Brasov on the other side”, Huffington Post writes, also presenting other nine amazing locations around the world with similar features.

Rope Street is now a tourist attraction and meeting spot for locals. Its width varies between 109 and 135 centimeters, and it is 80 meters long.
