Prejmer?s Days


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 feast ?Saint Apostle Peter and Paul? use to gather the whole community in an atmosphere of christian joy. The mayor of Prejmer, Constantin Serban, supported by the local council, the Centre for the conservation and promotion of the traditional culture Brasov, the orthodox parish, ANTREC and Eurorural Association Prejmer, organized a splendid show this year.

Peculiar Melting
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? (18th century).
The inhabitants treasure the religious belief as their most precious goods. Therefore, following the initiative of vicar Serban Sorin, the local council declared the day of June 27 as ?Prejmer?s Day?, in honour of the Saints Apostles Peter and Paul.

Authentic traditional Culture
At this year?s edition, the local authorities, along with local sponsors, offered a program of reach diversity, moments of real joy for the inhabitants and their guests. Prejmer?s Days was an excellent occasion to promote and exhibit the authentic traditional culture and the art of the popular artisans. The Association of the Popular Creators of Romania, the Brass Band of the German Forum, the dance bands ?The Carpathian Stag? and ?Korona?, the minivillage ?Saint Andrew?, the vocal band ?Viva la Musica?, the Folkloric band Prejmer, the exhibit of the popular artisans were reunited into the same cultural event.

Skilled Artisans
Bikes contests, sportive fishing, horse contest and football tour were some of the multiple offers of the event, gathering competitors of all ages. The traditional art lovers had the chance to attend the workshops of the popular handicraftsmen: 500 years old traditional glass painting of Tara Barsei (Cornel Sculean), the embroidered table cloths and the dolls from Cluj (Maria Dinea), lacery frivolité (Violeta Karmen Roman) or the icons on wood (Daniel Gavril Martalogu).
