The modern side of Ghimbav



Ghimbav town lies 7 km West of Brasov along the National Road 1 and Brasov-Sibiu railway. Situated at an average altitude of 535 meters, the town covers 28.9 sq. m. and has 5100 inhabitants. The town has developed in a surprising manner during the recent years due to major projects and investments carried out here. One of largest is the construction of the airport which will link this town to the rest of the world and create future business opportunities for local and foreign investors.

Between the past and the future

"Ghimbav town is already known internationally because of its interesting history, historical sites such as the fortified church, but also thanks to some complex events which take place here. By that I refer to the TrasilvAero Show 2010 when Brasov became the Romanian aviation capital, celebrating 100 years from the first flight of a jet-powered aircraft made by Henri Coanda. The event included a full aviation show gathering the most important local flight teams. The Romanian aviation industry has left its mark in this place where the airport is going to be built," said Mr. Toma Dorel, Mayor of Ghimbav.

The historical side of Ghimbav

If we make a parallel between the historical and modern Ghimbav, the historical part attracts like a magnet because links to the past have been discovered here ever since the Iron Age. There is a Dacian settlement specific to the First Iron Age civilization. On a large area of the town, significant quantities of Dacian ceramics have been discovered. The first settlement named "Campsor" lies on the same place of the current airport. This shows an even more ancient connection between history and the construction of the airport in Ghimbav which will link the past, the present and the future.

Urban development

"The urban development of Ghimbav was really dynamic during the last 10-15 years and the promotion of the tourist potential of this city is a top priority at this moment. Nowadays Ghimbav continues to develop economically through new companies conducting their business both on the former industrial platforms and by new investments. There are already world famous companies interested in opening businesses around the airport. Brasov is already known as the first tourist town in the country, after Romania's capital." said Mr. Toma Dorel, Mayor of Ghimbav.
