Historic area location
?Only the first part is practically finished. A bowling room and the skating ring shall be built in spring on the land where some other sports activities are being carried out at the moment, like mini football. The total investment is Euro 3.5 million. The funds were obtained through a loan granted by the Commercial Bank of Romania two years ago. The building in which the sports centre ?Agrement? is now functioning was erected in 1975, in this historic area, the building being abandoned after year 2000. It was bought by us because it was located in a nice area, close to the walls of the old Fortress of Brasov?, told us Mr. Aristotel Căncescu, President of the County Board of Brasov.
Support for the monuments
The money received from the sports and recreational activities carried out at ?Agrement? Centre shall be used for the support of all monuments in the historic area of Brasov. ?Though we have received requests whether to lease or rent the Complex, we refused to do so. Now the centre is given back to the people from Brasov, but also to the tourists who visit this tourist area, who wish to relax in a comfortable and diversified environment?, concluded Mr. Aristotel Căncescu.

We should also mention the beautiful view over Brasov town one can get here, close-up being the ancient walls of the Fortress, inside of which lie the Black Church and the Council Square (Piata Sfatului).
