Ţara Bârsei is a Romanian depression located inside the Carpathian arch. It is crossed by numerous rivers and fast mountain streams, being delimited on a good part by the Olt river. In 1211 the region was given to the Teutonic Knights by King Andrew II of Hungary in return for guarding the southeastern border of the Kingdom of Hungary against the Cumans. The Teutons built numerous castles in the area and brought settlers from the Holy Roman Empire to populate the territory. Today, this depression is among the most visited in Europe by nature and history lovers.
