One of the most important centers of orthodox religion in Suceava, maybe together with the one of Athos (Greece) or the network of serbian monasteries.
Here you can see some pictures about the day of the Covasint’s school: “Scoala Generala Corneliu Miclosi”. In this celebration (5 martie 2010), the school remembered the person of Corneliu Miclosi (5.03.1887-10.08.1963):
Corneliu Miclosi s-a nascut in comuna aradeana Covasint ca fiu al preotului ortodox Ioan Miclosi si al sotiei sale Melania. Scoala elementara a frecventat-o in parte in comuna Covasint si in parte in orasul Arad. DESI cu o situatie materiala un dintre cele mai bune absolva liceul “moise Nicoara” cu mentiunea eminent la bacalaureat in anul 1905, reusind sa stapaneasca, printe altele, sapte limbi straine. Studiile superiore le incepe la Politehnica din Budapesta, unde a si fost retinut la Catedra de tehnologie a Universitatii.
In anul 1913 incepe sa functionee ca inginer la Fabrica de cabluri electrice “Siemens”, tot la Budapesta.
In perioada primului razboi mondial a fost trimis pe fronturile din Galitia (regiune istorica impartita actualmente intre Polonia si Ucraina), Polonia si Italia pana in 1915. In timpul serviciului militar isi termina teza de doctorar pe care o sustine in mai 1912, obtinand astfel titlut stiintific de Doctor in stiinte tehnice cu mentiunea cu distinctie.
Dupa actul Unirii de la 1 Decembrie 1918 se intoarce in Romania si devine, intai inginer sef, mai apoi director la Tramvaiele Comunale Timisoara, care, din anul 1922 a funzionat cu Uzina Electrica formand Intreprinderile Electromecanice Timisoara, pe care Corneliu Miclosi le conduce pana in 1949.
In perioada 1947-1962 este profesor si sef de catedra la Institutul Politehnic Timisoara, iar din 1954 este seful sectiei de sudura si apoi directorul Centrului de cercetari tehnice al Bazei Academiei Timisoara, functii pe care le-a detinut pana la decesul sau survenit la 10 august 1963.
Apreciind activitatea stiintifica si aportul sau la dezvoltarea tehnicii noi, Academia Republicii Populare Romane l-a ales membru titular in 1995.
It's in catalan. It means: You know everything about Sighisoara. Because I suppose everybody has gone there or hear about it. I would like to go to its dark side, to the city that is not up, around the fortress, to the vulgar buildings and rests of companies, to the not touristic part. And in fact I was there, but I didn't take pictures. Was I just a tourist? No one escapes to that feeling. Enjoy yourself!
An example of the days of the past present, I mean, of the days of future past.
Also called Hermannstadt, is one example of one the Siebenbürgen respected by the past (maybe one example of the opposite are Bistrita). Maybe it's the city that shows how a good location, a solid history and the respect for a minority's heritage, can do for tourism.
A gallery of pictures about Bucuresti, city of huge buildings of concrete, survivor churches with pale paintings, 900 000 cars for around 2 milion of citizens, the ghosts of the Ceaucescu bureaucracy singing shy tunes, beautiful small houses in the ambassys neighborhood, silent dogs that hang around in the night in groups of five and restaurants with luxus atmosphere for 25 ron for the hope.
Bine ati venit!
The steps were going on just like this:
1) Some people went to the garden of orthodox church.
2) They were distributed in groups: children and men.
3) The priest indicated when they had to start.
4) Children started singing some carols.
5) Men went on singing some carols.
6) Men finished singing a carol about Mos Craciun.
7) Someone dressed as Mos Craciun went out from the orthodox church building and gave presents to the children.

O zi buna from the volunteers of Covasint.
Here you have the pictures of the Seara Interculturala. Jesus has uploaded an article explaining the content.
Here is our presentation to the community (09/12/09), as week gallery uploaded by us four volunteers of Covasint. The event was a success, considering many circumstances , and above all, that it was our first one.
Our Mentor presented the event, the Major of Covasint made an speech about our activity and our Coordinator said a few words as well. Then, we presented ourselves (in romanian!) and we showed a video of our countries (two general videos about Spain and Republic of Moldova, one of Valencia, another one of Andalucia and the last spanish one of Murcia).
After that, there was a meal with traditional dishes: Ensalá murciana, Tortilla de patatas (with and without onions), Salmorejo and traditional moldavian food.
Thanks for the ones that came and we wait for more people in the next event!

Inside off the limets of the ortodoxian church off covasint we can find a entografic museum that can keep alive the memory off old habits and tradicions. All the museum is a result of the ortodoxian priest in colaboration with some local persons that are donating old family values to make possible the improvement off the museum. In the museum we can find on section dedicated to tradicional costumes wich is diveded betwen diferent comunities one exclusive for covasint. We can find another section conected with musicology local and another more connect with religious exclusively for the ortodoxian church. The museum is not finished and another part off the museum is inside off the priest's house however he sais that all the material can be see for all the city. There's the intention to built one videoteca and one audio file.
The itention off keep alive the memory off our anestrals and their way off live is known for long ago. All off us, human beings, we need to fell us identifieds firt with one grup conected with one geografic limit and than we criate culture - one way to make circule one set off material and non-material elements that make us feel together and unit.
The effort to collect those elements are not restricted to responsable and important persons we can find that iniciative in another local persons. In covasint in a spontaneous meeting we discovered one off those cases. One local family that had coming to colect old romenian tradicional instruments and old pieces than can comunicat and keep alive the memory off diferent and older times.
