Cincșor is a village in the Brașov county, where the Hârtibaciu and the Transylvania plateaus meet. The village has had over the centuries many names, both in Romanian and German (Cincu Mic, Șincșor, Șinchișor or Kleinschenk) all meaning approximately the same = the small inn.
Writings about the existence of the village first appear in a Pope document in the year 1377. But it seems that the area had been inhabited before this time, as archeologist had found a Roman Castro here.
For some reason Brașov and Sibiu have always been competing for who is better, which city looks nicer, which is older, which has the best kept traditions and the coolest people. Since moving in Sibiu, I lived under the impression that Sibiu is actually the coolest. And that is maybe because I never took the chance to visit Brașov as a tourist.
Coming back from a very nice trip in the Ciucaș Mountains and passing through the Brasov county, the 7 LaddersCanyon is a must see. Very close to the city of Brasov and easy reachable by car, is a very nice place to enjoy a sunny Sunday if you are not afraid of heights.
I like the Fortified Churches of Transylvania so much! I find them one of the most important landmarks of this area of Romania. This time, it’s about the Rasnov fortified church.
Close to Brasov, at the base of the Bucegi Mountains, you will have the chance to visit one of the most well-preserved medieval citadels and defense systems of old Tranlsyvania.
