Discover Brașov

Located in the center of the country, Brașov City was and remains a bridge between material and spiritual values and an area of symbiosis between Romanian culture and the culture of the cohabiting nationalities.

The Brașov City (known as Ktonstadt in German language, Brassό in Hungarian language, Corona in Latin and mentioned on the ancient maps as Cron∫tadt, Brastovia or Braßov, as well as in the Transylvanian Saxon dialect as Kruhnen or Krűnen or, finally, Krînen) is the county capital city of the same named county of Transylvania, in Romania, and includes the cities of Brașov and Poiana Brașov.

The patron saint of the city is considered to be the Virgin Mary. Its statue is located on one of the buttresses of the Black Church, facing the Council House, with the coat of arms of Brasov carved below in relief.

Every year, in Șcheii Brașovului, on the first Sunday after Easter, that is, on Tomii Sunday, both the people of Brașov and the tourists attend the “Horseback Riding Day” as a unique traditional event. The Junii Brașov Parade is one of the most famous events that takes place annually in our city. Every time, thousands of residents and tourists are attracted to this show that takes place in the center of the old town.

The winter resort Poiana Brașov is located only 12 km away from the city center, with an infrastructure developed for winter sports.

Brasov is also known due to the International Festival “Golden Stag”.

Gastronomic experiences

They say that nowhere in Romania you will find such a great culinary diversity as in Transylvania.

Great diversity of flavours and tastes

The Romanian cuisine has only benefited from the influences brought by the communities in this area. Saxon, Romanian and Hungarian tastes have blended/mixed in a unique way that we proudly promote today as the traditional Transylvanian cuisine. The traditional culinary recipes in this area have a unique taste, reminding of the specific life of the village, of the land worked hard by the peasants and the ingenuity in turning the fruits of the earth into a feast of tastes.
