The sweet Apple Tree


At Codlea there is a unique celebration called ?The sweet apple?, reminding the old local legend of the wild apple. The event takes place late in autumn, after the harvest is gathered. The exhibition is held in the historic center of the town, near the medieval fortress, in a place known as the Promenade. The participants install for the feast stands with Romanian traditional products (salt meat, cheeses, must, beer, vegetables, fruits), each adorned with autumn products: reeds, dried flowers, pumpkins, corn, rush.

The Apple Story

Petrica Buhnici, director of the Communitarian House in Codlea, knows the story of the sweet apple: ?There is an old local legend about a big apple tree loaded with small and sour fruit so that nobody could eat them. The locals used to meet their sweethearts under the apple tree; their love whispers of the young boys and girls made the sour fruits become sweet?. The hill where the apple tree grows is called today ?the little sweet apple tree hill?. It became a symbol of Codlea and offers the best panorama over the town.

Invitation at Codlea

The Town Hall Codlea, the Local Council and the Communitarian House organize throughout the year outstanding cultural events dedicated to the promotion of the folk traditions and the popular multiethnic clothes. Alexandru Popa, the mayor of Codlea, invites all those who wish to visit Codlea and the medieval fortress to attend in December the folkloric shows organized in the historic center and the events dedicated to the Nativity and the New Year.
