Sanpetru Commune, Brasov County, is only 4 kilometres far from Brasov Municipality and it is located at the basis of Lempes Citadel Hill. It is interesting both from a historic point of view, thanks to the Transylvanian Saxon citadel, ‘Sf. Nicolae’ Church (Saint Nicholas Church) and its legends, and also thanks to the ‘Dealul Lempes’ (Lempes Hill) Natural Reservation. Nowadays, Sanpetru Commune is in full economic, agricultural touristic and cultural – historic growth. The local authorities invest in preserving its assets and in upgrading the infrastructure.
