The Council Square in Brașov offers tourists the opportunity to meet key figures of Braşov history, who are there in order to create a unique experience in the Ancient Fortress of Brașov. Tourists can thus discover the history of the city by talking to the tens of historical characters, they can join the pedestrian tours in the historical city center and attend the live painting of two works, with the theme “Braşov and First Person History”.
Tour guides - Characters
Locals and tourists alike can meet them in person, ask questions and, why not, even take pictures with them. Tour guides - historical figures are waiting for them with a smile, stories and tales of Brasov. The performances are inedited, the characters are wearing costumes from different historical periods, they have an imposing and elegant posture, and they punctually answer all questions addressed by the audience.
History, a tale
The cultural project “First Person History”, now at its 4th edition, is organized by Cultour Association and co-funded by Braşov City Hall.
