Brasov - a multicultural town



Brasov, crown town, has distinguished ever since it was formed in the 13th century, by the modality in which several ethnic groups, respectively Romanians, Hungarians and Germans (Transylvanian Saxons) managed to live in time together in peace and understanding. In old times, the representatives of these nationalities have built together the old medieval citadel, contributing to the development of town community. Today, multiculturalism in Brasov is the object of development policies for tourists with the purpose of making it the first town in the country from the tourism point of view.

Equal ethnic composition

"If before 1918 the population of the town at the bottom of Tampa Hill used to have almost an equal composition in terms of the ethnic structure, after the Second World War, the report was definitively declined in flavour of Romanians, who became the majority in the town and in Tara Barsei. The moral, but also institutional duty of the people from Brasov today is to acknowledge all the contributions of those who, in time, worked for town strengthening. It is not by accident that during the last years the efforts of the county public administration moved towards the recovery of multicultural bonds of the local and county community." declared Aristotel Cancescu, the President of the County Council Brasov.

Three big communities

Brasov was lucky to have in the past three big ethnic communities in variable proportions in time. Around 1888 these were perfectly equal in terms of number of people. Among these people there were the Transylvanian Saxon founders of the old borough, from which around 1000 persons are today in Brasov. If in 1919 the Hungarian community used to be slightly bigger, today there is around one tenth from the number of inhabitants of the town. The traditions of the three ethnic groups deserve to be known by tourists, and knowing the local particularities is a challenge.

Brasov, preferred by tourists

Brasov, with a unique, full of mystery history, with architectural values, maintains even today an exceptional cultural heritage. The modern town of the 21st century, where the old combines with the new in the most natural and spectacular manner is today a destination preferred by tourists around the world who find here unforgettable landscapes, medieval buildings, cultural institutions and the possibility to take part in artistic events all along the year. Tourists are thrilled when "awakened" by the bell in Casa Sfatului, by the songs of trumpets or even by the gunshots, by the Teutonic Knights or when greeted by the soldiers of the imperial garrison.
