Prejmer distinguishes among the localities of Tara Barsei; its origins are attested by documents since the early Middle Ages. The local cultural events promote the authentic values of the local Romanian and German traditions.

The original character is given by the melting of two different cultures and mentalities: German and Romanian. The historic value of Prejmer stands in its history full of events and the peculiar architectural monuments within its limits: the evangelic church (13th century), the peasant citadel (15th century) ? an architectural site part of the UNESCO?s patrimony, the orthodox church ?Saints Apostles Peter and Paul?
