The city was first attested in 1235 AD under the name Corona, a Latin word meaning "crown", a name given by the German colonists. According to Binder, the current Romanian and Hungarian names are derived from the Turkic word barasu, meaning "white water" with a Slavic suffix -ov. Other linguists proposed various etymologies including an Old Slavic anthroponym Brasa.
The first attested mention of Brașov is Terra Saxonum de Barasu ("Saxon Land of Baras") in a 1252 document. The German name Kronstadt means "Crown City" and is reflected in the city's coat of arms as well as in its Medieval Latin name, Corona. The two names of the city, Kronstadt and Corona, were used simultaneously in the Middle Ages. From 1950 to 1960, during part of the Communist period in Romania, the city was called Orașul Stalin (Stalin City), after the Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. (wikipedia)

Imi place mult ideea cu acoperisurile, foarte frumos prins... decat terase, mai bine tigla si cosuri.
Sa ai o seara fara cod si iarna...

Beautiful winterscape. The colors and light on this photo are its most compelling and captivating aspects. I love the roofs with white snow seen from elevated viewpoint, an excellent view. Well done.

un joli point de vu sur ces maisons enneigées!
J'aime les nombreux détails de ton shot.
C'est juste dommage que le sapin cache l'église.

Vedere frumoasă la acoperisuri acoperite de zăpadă ale orasului Brasov. În fundal de dealuri împădurite. Culori mare și de calitate perfectă.
