It is situated in the historical region of Transylvania, and is the main city of a subregion, Țara Făgărașului.In 2011 Romanians formed 91.7% of the population, the main minorities being represented by Romani people, Hungarians and Germans.NameAccording to linguist Iorgu Iordan, the name of the town is a Romanian diminutive of collective noun *făgar ("beech forest"), derived from fag, "beech tree".Another source of the name is alleged to derive from the Hungarian language word for "partridge" (fogoly). A more plausible explanation is that the name is given by Fogaras river coming from the Pecheneg "Fagar šu", which means ash water. Another source of the name is given by folk etymology to be Hungarian, as the rendering of "wood" (fa) and "money" (garas), with legends stating that money made of wood had been used to pay the peasants who built the fortress (Făgăraș Citadel) around 1310.Take the guesswork out of planning a Romania vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
