Yes, in summer it gets quite hot and mosquitos are very common. But no need to bring a spray with you (unless you have already bought it), as you will find sprays, coils, etc. in Romania in supermarkets, convenience stores and pharmacies.

Yes, there are mosquitoes in the city and surrounding villages in summer.

As mentioned above, no real need to bring anything, you can buy locally.

Not really, there's a pretty wide variety in pharmacies and large supermarkets during summer. Prices vary by brand, some are very cheap.

NO, they are not common in Brasov. I've been living here for 6 years, and I haven't been bitten a single time by a mosquito (unlike in Bucharest or Tg. Mures where they ate me regularly...)

If you go hiking, you'd better use an insect repellent spray though - especially as there are many ticks in the summer months.
