Brasov?s Days


During April 23-26, Brasov celebrated the eighth edition of Brasov's Days, an event which attracted, as always, many Romanian and foreign tourists. After the mayor?s speech, which opened the Days, the ceremony started with fireworks, then a parade leaded by the brass band, followed by the impressive groups of Juni on horses and children of the most important local sport clubs. The suite was closed by a long and elegant row of vintage cars.

Crafts and Folklore

Craftsmen from throughout the country exhibited their stalls with Romanian and Hungarian traditional products. The Slow-food Fair, The Flowers Fair and the Wine Street, all of them set-up in the historical centre of the city, were assaulted by tourists, eager to discover the specificity and taste of the local culture.
The special stage set-up in the Council Market hosted great folkloric shows, performed by the most famous ensembles in the county. Tourists had the opportunity to admire the Romanian, Hungarian and German popular clothes, songs and dances. The shows also included interpretations of ancient customs, among which the well-known ?Ploughman?, a ceremony dedicated to the spring and resurrection of the nature.

Juni?s Parade

As every year, Juni?s parade was the most expected moment of the Brasov?s Days ceremony. The majestic horsemen descended in town from the ancient neighbourhood of Scheii Brasovului, in a procession which order has been established by a long tradition. First came Young Juni, followed by Old Juni, Curcani, Dorobanti, Brasovecheni, Rosiori and Albiori. Each group is leaded by the bailiff, followed by the standard bearer and its two squires.
The bailiff bears a red banderol and the two squires a blue and a yellow ones - the colours of the Romanian national flag. After a majestic tour across the old centre, they return to their neighbourhood, where they party till the end of the day.

Cooks and Confectioners

The town hall also organized an exhibition of Romanian traditional gastronomy, hosted by the Great Hall of the ARO Palace restaurant. The tasty products have been spectacularly arranged by famous and medalled master chefs from Romania and abroad. Among them Robert Man, representing Romania in Brussels on Nations? Promenade; Carandente Domenico, Italian chef at the restaurant Prato; Dumitru Burtea, president of the Association of Cooks and Confectionars of Romania, Brasov Tourism School, etc.
