The Junii Feast

When the heavy snows of the harsh Brasovian winters are gone and spring sun shines again, it is the time for people from Schei, the old district of Brasov, to start celebrating the renewal. Yearly, they have a festival, called “Junii”, (translated it would be ‘The Feast of the Youth’) which stretches over weeks, having it’s climax on the first Sunday after Easter when seven groups of men from the Schei will ride from the mountains and travel around Brasov.
