The Flowers? Town


Codlea town, 15 km distant from Brasov, is a compact settlement at the foot of a hummock, representative for the localities of Tara Bârsei. It is known as the flowers' town; millions of carnations used to be exported once every day in the whole world.

Foreign Investments
Codlea is also known as the town of small producers, merchants and handicraftsmen, activities that flourished while the flowers' industry almost fell after 1989. The members of the local council initiated therefore an intense promoting campaign of the area, in Romania and abroad. Alexandru Popa, the mayor of Codlea, is fully supported by local counsellors ?to realize urban development projects and promote the town abroad. We manage to attract investors from Germany and France; Germans are involved in an accessories' facility for then car industry and a French company invested in the research field and the packing production?.

Infrastructure and History
The town hall and the local council unfold projects supported by the European Union funds, in the infrastructure's field. The most important is the rehabilitation project of the water-supply network and the sewerage system. ?We will continue the projects started in the past, including the rehabilitation of the historical area. We are opened to any kind of collaboration, in order to change the town's image? mayor Popa stated.

Traditions and Culture
Romanians, Germans and Magyars cohabit within the community of Codlea through the institutions and the cultural manifestations that continue the traditions. The folkloric band ?Magura? has been standing on stage since 40 years ago, performing traditional dances and songs of several folkloric areas of Romania. The town hall and ?Zeidner Jugend? Association Codlea, through the Cultural House, took over a German tradition called ?Kronenfest - The Crown's Feast?, a traditional manifestation that gather the entire population of the community.
