Right next to "Gambrinus" was the most notorious hotel in Brasov, "Pomul Verde"(The Green Tree), better than the "Bucharest Hotel" across the street, better even than the "Europe", in the Customs Lane, now the building which houses the "Corso" motion pictures. At that time Brasov had not yet become a centre of trade as it is nowadays; in summer when the holiday makers used to come from the Country, driven away by Bucharest's heat, urged by wanderlust and attracted by the European looks of clean and tidy still would have not been enough. People had therefore to go downtown and hire rooms.
Sextil Puscariu, "Brasov of Long Ago", 1977
