Fourteen ambassadors accredited in Romania visited Brasov in June. The diplomatic action is part of the information and documentation annual visit of the Diplomatic Corps. Coming from Sibiu, the European cultural capital, the ambassadors, guided by prefect Aurelian Danu, visited The First Romanian School, ?St. Nicholas? Church of Scheii Brasovului and kept a recollection moment at the grave of the great ambassador Nicolae Titulescu.
History Lesson in Church
The recollection moment at Titulescu?s grave was honoured with military brass band tunes. The ambassadors were greeted by ?St. Nicholas? Church?s vicar Vasile Prodea. He made a short incursion in the halidom?s history, spoke about the traditions of the ancient inhabitants of the neighbourhood ? Junii Brasoveni and the old citadel of Brasov.
?St. Nicholas? Twig
The guests also visited the First Romanian School, located in the church?s court. Professor Vasile Olteanu taught them o short lesson of Romania?s history. The 40 ambassadors jostled in the secular little desks, while father Olteanu played the old fashion teacher, using a twig called ?St. Nicholas? used once to admonish the recalcitrant pupils.

Brasov was the last destination of the circuit the ambassadors followed, passing through Sibiu, Cozia, Ocna Sibiului and Sibiel.
The visits will be resumed in September, when all the Diplomatic Corps?s members accredited in Bucharest are expected in Brasov. Other institution such as The Camber of Commerce and Industry, the County Council and the Town hall Brasov will be involved in this promotional project of the county?s opportunities.
