Please note that entry is free!
Wheather you want to or not, you associate Anna Lesko with her best known hit „Ard in flacari ” or her controversial relationship with the businessman Irinel Columbeanu.
Her shows are downright incendiary and what steals the look is the mix of costumes (which are spectacular), dancers and choreography.

Mandinga will represent Romania this year at Eurovision 2012 – Azerbaijan Baku with Zaleilah, a song whose composer is none other than …. Costi Ionita.We wish them good luck; we are proud of them and expect them home with a top place!

Continuing the agenda of events!

Saturday April 21, 2012 starting 5:30 p.m., also in Piata Sfatului, in the same event (Brasov Days) will perform the following: Alex Velea, Elly White and Fly Project. Also, the entry is free.

I discovered Alex Velea on the show Star Factory from Prima TV, afterwards due to the very successful collaboration with Anda Adam (Selecta), and last but not least, working with HaHaHa Production and Smiley.

The most successful song of Fly Project was „Brasil” a collaboration with the great artist Anca Parghel in 2008.

Elly White is the former vocalist from Dj Project.

One of the most spectacular events take place on Sunday April 22, event called Sarbatoarea Junilor 2012, an event that combines elements of folk magic, myth and ceremony.
Sarbatoarea Junilor from Brasov Scheii is a tradition that takes place every year on the Sunday after the feasts of Easter, Sunday of Tomii.

Meaning of „june” in Transylvania is the „young unmarried man”

We recommend those who want to catch a good place to watch or photograph, to be present in the Piata Sfatului starting with 10h am. Even if the announced start time is 11h. It is easily to understood that at 11h, Piata Sfatului will be full and you risk not find any good place to see the show.
You can watch the show as well from the route.

 width=

The route is:
around 10 o’clock their heading towards Piata Prundului in front of St. Nicholas Church, down the Muresenilor st. Eroilor Bvd. Up on Nicolae Balcescu st., pass Schei Gate, up to the Stones of Solomon where a real show can be seen. Once they get there, junii sit around the table then compete in throwing the mace. Something you cannot miss.

I wonder how hard is a mace? Up to what distance can you throw it? It should be very interesting and funny.
In the evening, Junii come down to Piata Sfatului.

 width=

The whole procession is spectacular and would be a shame to miss it, especially during the route of 7 bands of Juni, they stop and sing „Christ has Risen” to each group and the group is responding with „Truly Risen”.
It is very exciting.

And the last event which ends this weekend is presenting traditions of Brasov communities: Greek, Hungarian, German and Roma.
Venue will be Piata Sfatului, April 22, 2012 between 13h and 19h.

All above events are organized by Brasov City Hall.

Have I convinced you?

OK! Then we wait you at hotel Alpin terrace to enjoy a cold lemonade good or excellent coffee.
