Photographer's Note

The Trumpeter’s Tower at the top of the old town hall was once used as a watchtower to warn of approaching danger. Brasov was founded by Saxons and this clocktower was built in the 13th century. The Saxons settled in Romania between the mid 12th century up until the late Modern Age (specifically mid 19th century) when it ceased being part of the Austro Hungarian Empire and became a part of Romania in 1918. The town hall overlooks Council Square (Piata Sfatului).
