Introduction

Sfântu Gheorghe – or Sepsiszentgyörgy, as the town is known to its Hungarian majority population – doesn't brim with sights, but it’s an attractive place to delve into Székely culture. Some 32km north of Braşov, this town in Covasna county has an excellent museum on the history and traditions of Székely people, and a park fringed with Habsburg buildings and pleasant cafes. An agreeable detour.
