Miercurea-Ciuc, Romania is Our Featured Location
Miercurea-Ciuc is the county seat of Harghita county. The city lies in the east of the county in the Olt valley. Before 1918, Miercurea-Ciuc was the capital of Csík County in the Kingdom of Hungary. After the city became the county seat of Harghita in 1968, a new socialist style city centre was constructed. It began to develop into the centre of Szekler culture and identity. In 2001 the old Harghita Hotel was converted into the Sapientia Transylvanian Hungarian University, which, although privately run, is the first Hungarian university in Romania. Other cities in Transylvania also have Sapientia University faculties. Since the university opened it has been attracting more and more young people and intellectuals. Miercurea-Ciuc is one of the coldest cities in the whole of Romania, with winter temperatures often going under -30°C, making the city ideal for winter sports. The Miercurea-Ciuc ice rink, Vákár Lajos műjégpálya, annually hosts the national ice hockey championships, often won by the local team, Csíkszeredai Sport Club. In 2006 the ice rink hosted the world junior championship in short track speed skating. The only long track speed skating rink in Romania is situated next to the indoor ice hockey rink. Another source of pride in the city is the famous Ciuc beer (also known as Csíki sör), considered by some to be the best beer in Romania.
