The famous Strada Sforii in Brașov will be closed during the night.
In 2018, an area was set up on Sforii street where graffiti enthusiasts and those who are used to leaving messages on the walls can do so freely. The visitors, however, are the ones who do not take into account this delimited area and scribble all over the street. Many of the tourists who arrive in the city at the foot of Tâmpa want to leave their “print” on the walls of Sforii Street, the third narrowest street in Europe.
“Strada Sforii has become an urban ghetto and this is mainly because of tourists, who feel the need to write all kinds of things on the walls. It’s an attack on private property,” says Kristina Creoșteanu, executive director of the Brașov Historical Monuments Foundation.
In order to protect the street from the “works of art” of passers-by, the Brașov Historical Monuments Foundation wants to install anti-vandalism grilles.
“We requested authorization for the installation of the anti-vandalism system and the procedure is ongoing. We want to put grills during the night. The visitor will be able to see the street, but will not be able to cross it,” Kristina Creoșeanu, executive director of the Brașov Historical Monuments Foundation, told Biz Brașov, writes BizBrașov.

The particularly warm weather affected mesophytic species, with medium requirements for soil moisture, such as beech, hornbeam, mountain lime, alder, ash and maple. However, species with greater resistance to drought, such as the jugaster, also suffered, writes bizbrașov.
“Among the shrub species, the honeysuckle was affected, which has higher demands on soil and atmospheric moisture, but also more drought-resistant shrubs, such as darmox and bloodsucker. A rarer species of rosehip, Rosa spinosissima, which usually tolerates a lack of moisture, was also affected. As expected, there are also specimens of the above-mentioned species that are less or not at all affected.
More resistant specimens probably have a genetic endowment that determined a better adaptation to water stress conditions and/or occupy a more favorable microhabitat. For example, they are found in an area with a higher volume of soil and more moisture (read more HERE).
