                               Established on an ancient Dacian site, Brasov started as a Saxon town, known as Kronstadt, in 1235 with small manufacturing businesses and workshops set up here by the early settlers. By the 15th century, Brasov was protected by a three tier wall punctuated by 30 towers and bastions. In the 16th century, Transylvania's Protestant Reformation was conducted from here. One of the first public oppositions to the Ceausescu government flared here in 1987. Brasov is one of Romania's most visited cities and one of its most important rail junctions.
