This year, the Christmas lights adorning the streets in the historical city centre of Brasov and the Christmas trees in the four public squares (the Council Square, the Union Square, St. John Square and Enescu Square), as part of “Brasov, a Fairy-tale City” initiative, will have a new concept.
No less than 700,000 lights will glow on the city centre streets and in the Christmas tree in the Council Square. The concept of the winter holidays Festive Lights in Brasov is entitled “Whirlwind Dance!”
The decorations have dynamic, bold, apparently chaotic lines, imitating the natural whirlwind dance. The tree, the pole-mounted decorations, the crossings, the small medallions, they all shed translucent warm white and transparent pure white light notes. The entry on Republicii Street is marked by a light crossing that imitates stage curtains, with diamond strings. A warm white light chandelier thrones in the centre. The main and side entrances towards Republicii pedestrian street and the square are marked by seven special lit gates, guarded by wooden soldiers.
The Dance of 100 Snowflakes
The Union Square will be wrapped in the classical warm white lights, the tree being loftily decorated with golden coins at the basis, while the crown will feature golden ornaments, tinsel and lights. A tree spreading warm light and decorated with white medallions will tower in George Enescu Square. The poles in St. John Square will be decorated with red lights. The theme of the lofty tree is the dance of 100 snowflakes, in different sizes and light tones, engaging in a tempestuous swirl that starts from the basis and wraps the tree up to the top, leaving behind a trace of white lights.
The poles in the city centre will be decorated with lit Christmas ornaments. A number of 269 ornaments, with heights ranging between 1 and 3 meters, will be mounted in the area between N. Iorga and Unirii Square, there will be icicle crossings on M. Weiss, Postavarului, Apollonia Hirscher and Diaconu Coresi Streets, Christmas tree-shaped lights in Titulescu Park and in front of the Office of Vital Statistics, as well as the artesian fountain and the Christmas tree in the Council Square.
