The mayor specified that he will ask for a re-evaluation of the monument hoping that the price proposed by SIF could drop.

Brasov City Hall is negotiating for the takeover of the city’s Citadel since last year.

The Citadel entered the tourist circuit in 1982, being managed by the National Tourist Office (ONT). ONT has privatized after 1990 and has divided into SC Postavarul SA and SC Poiana SA, which took over the tourist units and accommodation units in heritage buildings of Brasov, including the Citadel of Brasov.

Currently, Financial Investment Company (SIF) Transilvania is the major shareholder of the Citadel, while the company Aro Palace is managing it, using for trade a part of the historical monument’s premises. (sursa:
