Much German in Romania

the german flag
I knew a bit about german culture in Romania before I moved here. There is a german minority and there are german names for cities – of course.
But I didn’t know about german named supermarkets everywhere full of german named produkts inside. Isn’t it strange for romanian people to buy produkts with descriptions on the packaging they cannot understand?  This was a big surprise for me. I also saw a lot of german words in the names of restaurants and for example german slogans on t-shirts.
I discovered that there is a center for german culture in Brasov and maybe I will visit one of their exhibitions or events in the next months.
So I am curious about finding more of my mother tongue in Romania.
Mireille.
