General description

Hello BEST people!

"Mayan Calendar " 2012: the big date! With the recent fear, curiosity, and excitement about the onset of the Armageddon on December 21st 2012?.? Wait!What??BEST Brasov doesn't approve this message and they are going to do something about it this Summer!

Be a part of the little, but strong, team of heros by participating at the "Green Summer: Sustainable Energy" course!

And that's not all! Who said learning has to be boring? We surely didn't and that's why learning is going to be an amazing experience in appreciating nature. What's better than to relax while pursuing your favorite hobby?!

And now comes to big question: What will you do after the bell rings?

Brasov is one of the largest and most cherished cities of Romania. Surrounded on three sides by mountains, it was a perfect place for a medieval settlement. The old city, founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1211, is one of the best preserved cities in all of Europe.

The city centre is a nice place to rest, and soak in the beautiful scenery. In the summer outdoor cafes line the square and the place is lively. The distinct element of elegance, right in the middle of the square, a fountain cools the air. Walk down on the picturesque pedestrian-only Republicii street, for shopping, restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops.

We hope that we can help you to find a way to be the change you wish to see in the world!
