Sâmbăta de Sus (German: Obermühlendorf; Hungarian: Felsőszombatfalva) is a commune in Brașov County, Transylvania, Romania. It is composed of two villages, Sâmbăta de Sus and Stațiunea Climaterică Sâmbăta (Felsőszombatfalvi üdülőtelep).

Formerly part of Voila Commune, these villages were split off to form a separate commune in 2003.


The early 18th-century Brâncoveanu Monastery is located here. It was designed in the Brâncovenesc style, and construction was sponsored by Prince Constantin Brâncoveanu, of the Ottoman-dominated Principality of Wallachia.
