Harman Comune, which is to be part of Brasov metropolitan area, is involved in a sustainable development process. Magyar, German and Gipsy locals still conserve traditional and cultural customs. The locality entered into the touring circuit thanks to the medieval fortress, erected between 1500-1520, with 5 meters thick and 12 m high walls. In the old days, the fortress used to have six bastions and was surrounded by deep water ditches. The inner church was built by Cistercien monks between 1280-1290, in Romanic style, and renewed later in Gothic style.
Folklore, a continuous Feast
Every year in December, Brasov hosts the National festival of traditional Christmas and New Year customs. Among the folkloric ensembles gathered here from across the country there is ?Vatra Harmanului?, the local famous and talented band. Mayor Mihai Disor is one of the promotors of the folkloric local treasures: ?We try to revive the customs and nowadays traditions wich were flourishing once in this area. The folkloric band is famous for the authenticity of its performances. During Christmas holidays, the folklore is a very important side of the inhabitants' life?.
In the popular calendar of the commune's existence, there are also many ceremonies inspired by the community's religious beliefs.
