On the sign:
ברשוב רומניה
ברשוב הידועה גם בשם הלטיני-גרמני גורונה נמצאת במרכז המדינה והינה אחת הערים הגדולות והמטופחות ביותר של רמוניה. ברשוב נמצאת כ-160 ק"מ צפונית לבוקרשט, מוקפת בהרי הקרפטים.
בשלהי המאה ה-16, ברשוב הפכה להיות אחד המעוזים הכלכליים, פוליטיים ותרבותיים החשובים ביותר בדרום אירופה. בברשוב הודפס הספר הרומני הראשון.
בימי מלחמת העולם השנייה חלק גדול מהעיר נהרס שוב. למרבה המזל ובעיקר הודות לתושביה, העיר נבנתה מחדש ואתריה ההסטוריים שוחזרו.
האקלים וסביבתה של ברשוב איפשרו פיתוח אזור תיירותי חשוב ביותר. פוינה ברשוב ופרדיאל הינן שמורות טבע מפורסמות בכל העולם, עקב מיקומן ומתקניהן המצויינים לספורט וקיץ וחורף כאחד.
עד המאה ה-19, לא הורשו היהודים להתיישב באזור, לכן מספרם כה מועט. למרות זאת, השכילו לצבור השפעה ולנהל חיי קהילה תוססים.
הקהילה היהודית בברשוב קטנה אך פעילה מאד. לפני מספר שנים כאשר חגגה 100 שנים להיוסדו של בית הכנסת היפהפה של ברשוב, הוכרז על בית הכנסת כאתר רשמי של המדינה.

During World War II, the city was partly destroyed, but the determined people living in Brasov rebuilt the city and restored the historical buildings.
