Cristian: the "Road of Bread"


The first edition of the Festival "Road of Bread" was organized in Cristian, Brasov County, on the local Youth Stadium, between 19th and 21st August 2011. The Festival is part of the project "The promotion of tourist products in Cristian" which will last for two years and it is intended to raise tourist attractiveness of Cristian as a tourist destination.

Promotion of Traditions

«The "Road of Bread" Festival is a true holiday including: customs, folk music and traditions, light music concerts, craftsman workshops, culinary and traditional art exhibitions offered by the locals and the guests. The Festival also included a folk costumes parade through the commune with folk dance fragments, accompanied by traditional music. This was a good opportunity to hand out to the public presentation materials on the tourist promotion of Cristian. There were also demonstrations by craftsmen at work with traditional products specific to the Romanian and the Saxon living in Cristian and the surroundings. The purpose of these workshops was not only to complete and promote the "Road of Bread" show, but also to present elements specific to the culture of this region, highlighting the folklore and ethnic diversity of the Transylvanian space», said Mr. Serafim Dragos, Mayor of Cristian.

Folk songs and dances

Tourists were greeted with tasteful food made on the spot. For two days folk music and dance shows, light music and folk recitals have been performed on the stage placed on the Youth Stadium of Cristian, much to the delight of the audience.
The folk group "Junii Cristianului" with a wide genuine folklore repertoire, county folk groups, and vocal artists also performed at the festival. People could also enjoy the projection of a movie called the "Bread Civilization" and listen to extraordinary pop, rock, café concert and jazz recitals.
The hosts were "Nanasii" of Jibou and "Finele" of Cristian.

Open Doors

«Brasov, this beautiful city lying at the bottom of Tampa Hill, seems like a giant pray bird resting its wings over an old human settlement, Cristian, which generously opens its "doors" to those who want to witness the treasures hidden behind the Transylvanian valleys. The founding and the historical becoming of the commune reflect a destiny shared both by the Romanian and the Saxon in an everlasting process, which in the end belongs to all of us. Please take a moment to discover it!». By these words Mr. Serafim Dragos, the Mayor of Cristian, invited the tourists to visit the commune of Cristian.
