Town Hall and Town Hall Square

Along the centuries, the Town Hall Square was the center of the citadel, hosting the most important bargains, where merchants and craftsmen from all Romania were present. In older times, the square was surrounded by houses built in the Renaissance, Provincial and Neoclassic Baroque style, houses in which shops and warehouses were accommodated.
In modern times, reintroduced since 1992 (after 20 years of interruption), the international music contest “The Golden Stag” takes place every year.
The Town Hall Square, dated in the first half of the XV th century, is dominated by the Town Hall, a building which combines several architectural styles. On the facade you can see the coat of arms representing a crown on a tree stump with 13 roots—symbolizing the 13 villages of the Barsa-county. During the centuries, this building has been the residence of the administration and the Court of the city, but now the History Museum of Brasov is established here.
