Inspired by F39, and it's country

Festival Creative was inspired by a little place called Festival 39 in Brasov, Romania. You've got to love the Chan Chan playing when you click on the link. Ibrahim would be proud. Aah, to sit in this place with the exposed brick walls and the cool recycled wood floors, a bottle of vin and some friends, is perfection. It is unpretentious and cozy, filled with nostalgic photos from years gone by. In the evenings this place gets pretty busy, as it is a Brasov fav. In Worcester, the equivalent place would have to be Nick's or Vincent's. It was there, at Festival that I finally settled in and felt like I was experiencing life in this provincial mountain town as it should be. Provincial only by way of the cobblestone and pastel stucco buildings of medieval architecture.

Although much of the cobblestone has been replaced with asphalt over the last few years, Brasov has been evolving into a must see town on a visit to Eastern Europe. From Sighisoara to Vama Veche, I could not get enough of the views, the food and the people. Oh yeah, then there's the Murfatlar, La Dinamo in Doi Mai, and The Stuf and Ovidiu in Vama Veche. Noroc to endless inspiration!
