Ţara Bârsei

Română Ţara Bârsei

Ţara Bârsei este o zonă istorică situată în centrul ► României, având centrul istoric, cultural, economic şi social în municipiul Braşov. Denumirea provine de la râul Bârsa (Burzen), care este un afluent al râului Olt. Geografic, Ţara Bârsei este o depresiune dispusă în interiorul arcului Carpatic, delimitată de localităţile Apaţa la nord, Bran la sud, Vlădeni la vest şi Prejmer spre est. Totuşi, prin tradiţie, zona include şi comuna Şercaia. Este străbătută de numeroase râuri şi pârâuri repezi de munte, fiind delimitată pe o bună porţiune de râul Olt.

German Burzenland

Das Burzenland ist eine historische Landschaft im Zentrum Rumäniens, wobei dessen historischer, kultureller, wirtschaftlicher und sozialer Mittelpunkt in Kronstadt liegt. Die Bezeichnung stammt von dem Fluss Burzen, der ein Nebenfluss von Alt ist. Aus geographischer Sicht ist das Burzenland innerhalb des Karpatenbogens ein Tiefland, begrenzt im Norden durch die Ortschaft Geist, im Süden durch die Törzburg, Wladein im Westen und Tartlau im Osten. Traditionell wird auch Schirkanyen hinzugezählt. Die Landschaft wird von zahlreichen Flüssen und Bächen durchflossen und grenzt zu einem bedeutenden Anteil an dem Fluss Alt.
