Photographer's Note

This is Braşov in central Romania, also known by its old German name Kronstadt. Contrary to the slogan of an international brewery it is, in my opinion, probably not the best city in the world, not even the best in Romania, but it's good enough and certainly worth a visit.

Braşov is part of the Transylvanian region, rich in culture and natural beauty. The old town is squeezed in between steep, forested hillsides and the surroundings are well known for its many bears. They are sometimes known to enter the suburbs of the city looking for food - or so my guidebook claims.
