Frizztext’s A toZ challenge:K is for Kronstadt

Time for the letter ‘K’ in Frizztext’s A to Z challenge

From my travels, K could be for Kaysersberg, Krems, Klagenfurt, Lake Konstanz, Klopeinersee, Kloster Weltenburg… but I’m going out on a limb, and heading for Kronstadt, which is the old name for a city in Romania.

Kronstadt is the German name (meaning Crown City – the coat of arms of the city is a crown with oak roots) for Brasov, in the Transylvanian region of Romania. In the Middle Ages, German colonists known as the Transylvanian Saxons played a decisive role in the development of towns, including Brasov.

Brasov is surrounded by the Southern Carpathian mountains:

There is some wonderful architecture in the main square:

Sadly, I took very few photographs when we visited Brasov, so that’s it!

  1. hi Sue, i like your Intros so much! “K could be for Kaysersberg, Krems, Klagenfurt, Konstanz, Klopeinersee, Kloster Weltenburg… for Kronstadt…” – well Konstanz is real nice, Köln too (Cologne), Kansas City: O.K. but your Kronstadt gave me a remembrance to Königsberg, at the Baltic Sea, former German and philosopher’s KANT hometown, nowadays the name of the city for sure has changed…

    You always have a surprise up your sleeve for the A-Z challenge!

  3. That’s clever, using a different language! That’s a lovely square – huge church tower!

    Transylvania … not ventured there yet .. but then I do like an undisturbed nights sleep 😉

  5. It looks beautiful, Sue 🙂

  6. Few photos but lots of memories I bet.

  7. I love the long shot of the town nestled in the valley. Lovely interpretation Sue. I would have had to go with a lone shot of Koln Cathedral 🙂

Over to you...
