K is for Kronstadt

For K, 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:

The main square has some great architecture, but sadly we weren’t in the place for long, and I took very few images. Shame I took no photos of  the Black Church (information at this website), and a number of other sights there.

  1. Fabulous scenery and a fine looking city, from all I’ve seen, Sue. 🙂 🙂

  2. Looks lovely nestled in the valley there and what an interesting town square. Are you tempted to go back to Romania Sue?

      I am tempted, but I really don’t think I’m up to it, health wise. And they won’t have the infrastructure for disabled folk….

  3. Looks lovely, really enjoyed your pics

  4. This alphabet is certainly taking you all over the world.

  5. What a beautiful location!

  6. Hello from Paris (in France)

    This country is beautiful and so green, a real splendor.
    Sometimes we stay so little time in a city or place (passing) that we do not have time to photograph and visit what we would like.
    The two photographs that you show us make you want to go there too.

  7. I always like those main squares in European cities, and Brasov is no exception.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  8. I haven’t been to Romania, but that town nestled in the mountains and that wonderful architecture do look inviting. 🙂

Over to you...
