Codlea town, known as the ?Flowers? Town? because of its greenhouses that exported flowers all over the world, already entered the spring atmosphere. Although still winter, the first snowdrops popped up at the foot of Magura Hill. The communitarian house of Codlea flusters as the year began; the small manufacturers, the handicraftsmen and the traders prepare for the contest-Festival ?The First Snowdrop?.
Displaying the Tradition
As mayor Alexandru Popa stated, the town hall intents to diversify the cultural activities and make them known to the European extended family. ?The first important cultural display will be on Valentine?s Day. 80 folkloric bands will attend the event, within a surprises-spangled show. The Pupils? Club are the organizers of the second display in occasion of the ?First Snowdrop? Festival. A graphic, sculptures and paintings exhibition will end the event. We will continue our traditional cultural activities, already arrived at their fourth or sixth edition, which will attract, as always, a large number of Romanian and foreign tourists?.
The Sweet Apple
Petrica Buhnici, director of the Communitarian House Codlea, will organise a new feast called
?The Sweet Apple?, from a green hill where used to be once an apples orchard. Lovers still take romantic walks under the few apple-trees in the area. ?Codlea remains an interesting cultural location, conserving its traditions. That?s the reason why we will continue the already started activities and imagine new ones to represent our community?, stated Buhnici, one of the best-known sculptors in Romania.
?Magura Codlei? Band
The folkloric band ?Magura Codlei?, has been gathered, since 40 years ago, the biggest talents of the area within the Communitarian Centre. It reunites today several folkloric groups which represented Brasov and Romania at many festivals from Occident and Eastern Europe. Codlea town is eager to turn to profit its cultural patrimony within the large and diversified European cultural life.
