    • Brassó was the Hungarian name Brașov (Romanian pronunciation: [braˈʃov] ( listen); German: Kronstadt; Hungarian: Brassó, Hungarian pronunciation: [’brɒʃʃoː]; Medieval Latin: Brassovia or Corona; 1950–1960: Orașul Stalin) is a city in Romania and the capital of Brașov County.
      According to the last Romanian census, from 2011, there were 227,961 people living within the city of Brașov, making it the 8th most populous city in Romania, and the metropolitan area is home to 335,668 residents.[1]
      Brașov is located in the central part of the country, about 166 km north of Bucharest. It is surrounded by the Southern Carpathians and is part of the Transylvania region.
      The city is notable for being the birthplace of the national anthem of Romania and for hosting the Golden Stag International Music Festival.

      My Grandperents from my Father’s morther side (Vladarean) were from Brasov!

      • We always enjoy visiting Brasov. I liked it better though before the did the “restoration” on the old wall. Now it looks more like an amusement park attraction, in my opinion.

      • I’ve never been there since 1983…And now, It’s more than likely a little too late. One thing I wished was to see Fagaras as Judet, again…But good deeds of good people are never forgiven or forgotten! You see Orasul Fagaras wouldn’t have been ever named after the biggest killer the world have ever had: Stalin…Nobody would’ve ever even try to!
