Photographer's Note

I got temporarily tired of my scanned photos from decades ago, so I thought I would shock you with a relatively recent postcard showing no people at all.

This is the city of Brașov in the Transylvanian part of central Romania. It is a multi-cultural area with a long history. In medieval Latin the city was known as Brassovia, in Hungarian it is called Brassó, and it is also sometimes known by its German name Kronstadt. During the 1950's the city was called Orașul Stalin.

It is a very nice city, attracting lots of tourists enjoying the narrow streets and beautiful buildings of the Old town. Brașov is surrounded by steep mountains and deep forests being the home to hundreds of bears, sometimes said to enter the suburbs of the city.

This is obviously not a scan. You can see a larger version here.
