European interest in Viscri ? Bunesti - Roades


The commune Bunesti (Brasov), the old Romanian name Bundorf, (Bondorf, Bondref, Bodndref in the Transylvanian Saxon dialect, Bodendorf, Budendorf in German, Szaszbuda in Hungarian) is a locality in the county of Brasov, Transylvania, Romania. Famous personalities from all around the world such as Prince of Wales and singer Peter Maffay were attracted by this area like a magnet. The reason: the history of the area, the unpolluted air and the authenticity of the location. European projects were developed here and the simplicity of the Transylvanian village was featured. The commune includes villages: Crit, Mesendorf, Viscri and Roades.

Touristic attractions

"The entire area is visited by tourists and many of them stop from their way to Sighisoara to see the most important touristic objectives. Two touristic information points were created especially for them in Viscri and Bunesti. There is a huge interest in fortresses Viscri, Bunesti, Roade and Crit. We also have people visiting us at Monastery Sf. Gheorghe Bunesti and the Ethnographic Museum from Viscri and Bunesti. Here people are hospitable and each of them is willing to offer the visitors some traditional products. We are glad that, besides tourists, Prince of Wales and other personalities showed their interest in our area and they even developed important projects for the sustainable development of the area," said Mr. Mircea Palasan, the Mayor of commune Bunesti.

About Viscri

People talk a lot about Viscri, too, because of the excellent results of Foundation Mihai Eminescu, protected by Prince of Wales. Though people know less that the accomplishments of this foundation also exist in several villages from Transylvania (Crit, Mesendorf, Malancrav, Saschiz are just some examples).
Viscri is just one of the special Transylvanian Saxon villages because of the wonderful fortified church included in the list of UNESCO monuments.

About Roades

Village Roades is also on Europe's map because of the project for traumatized children initiated by the Foundation Peter Maffay, laying the basis of the Centre for Children in the old Vicarage.
Germany's Minister of Culture arrived in Roades for the inauguration of this centre, together with representatives of the Romanian state, thus creating a connection between the two cultures. On this occasion, artist Peter Maffay donated important amounts of money from sponsors in Germany for the care of traumatized children.
These are just a few examples ? two Transylvanian villages everybody used to forget about which became famous on Europe's map.
