Photographer's Note

Council House is considered a symbol of Brasov (Kronstadt), along the Black Church. Located in the old part of Brasov, Council Square was a shopping center, social and cultural Brasov over several centuries. Since 1520, this new area - called at that time Marketplatz - gained the right to organize trade fairs.

The center is Town Hall Square, which houses, in 1950, the County Museum of History. Council House was built in 1420 was instead a surveillance tower. Over the years has undergone several reconstructions, due to disasters (fires, earthquakes) or invasion, in great shape today since 1780.
