Sfântu Gheorghe (Sepsiszentgyörgy)

The rather scrappy capital of Covasna County, Sfântu Gheorghe (Sepsiszentgyörgy in Hungarian, named after a combination of the local Székely seat and Saint George) sits on the banks of the Olt River to the north of Romania's major industrial and tourist city of Braşov. Typical of most county seats, it was largely rebuilt during communist times, but remains an important center of Hungarian culture and history.
