The Teutonic Knights, the soldiers of Michael Weiss and the Habsburg garrison


At the initiative of the County Council of Brasov, the ?Military Traditions of Brasov? event took place in the Council Square. It included the presentation of historical groups intended to recreate the periods marking the military tradition of our town: the Teutonic knights (at the beginning of the 18th century), the soldiers from the period of the Prime Judge Michael Weiss (at the beginning of the 16th century) and the Habsburg garrison from the Napoleonic wars period.
The Habsburg Garrison
The ?Military Traditions of Brasov? project is linked to another project called ?History Music? intended to present an authentic recreation of old times for the locals and guests. The event was organized at the same time with the procession of horsemen Juni while heading to the Fortress. This attracted a lot of locals and tourists. They had the opportunity to meet the Teutonic knights, the soldiers from the period of Prime Judge Michael Weiss and the soldiers who once formed the Habsburg garrison at the beginning of the 19th century. The soldiers` costumes and weapons were very much admired by the audience which did not miss the opportunity to take photographs with them.
Cannon firing from the White Tower
Several cannon shots were fired the moment the procession of horsemen Juni reached the Council Square. At the same time the sound of the Square House bell could be heard and the trumpeters costumed in medieval apparel sang three relevant songs for the ethnic groups living in Brasov: a Hungarian signal, a fragment from theoperetta ?Crai Nou? by Ciprian Porumbescu and a fragment from ?Siebenburgen? composition.
Changing the Guards
?This event is part of the manifestations by which the County Council of Brasov intends to celebrate the 775th anniversary from the first records of Brasov. We thought to greet the horsemen Juni of Brasov as it should be done, as it used to be done formerly ever since the Austro-Hungarian Empire period. Our action was not intended to compete with the ceremony of Juni, but, on the contrary, to honour them?, said Mr. Aristotel Cancescu, President of the County Council of Brasov.
We want to add that the Changing of Guards will take place every day in the Council Square, at 6 P.M., during the entire summer season, in the sound of the trumpeters playing in the Square Tower.
