    Favorite thing: Orastie city was always known as a city of craftsmen and craftsmanship. Local craftsmen and artisans where well known beyond city's limits. The notable Neolithic culture at Turdas (4 miles from Orastie) affirms a strong evolution of the crafts in this area. 13 centuries ago, Orastie region was the birthplace of "CARUL DE BRONZ DE LA ORASTIE" the earthen pot with a distinct artistic refinement for a 7th century craftsmen. Based on the existent statues in 1376, at Orastie where mentioned 25 craftsmen associations and those representing craftsmen where organized in 19 distinct craft trades: furriers, butchers, glove makers, bakers, wool workers, potters, knife makers, tailors ...etc. In 1897 was inaugurated the first Romanian craftsman union.
