The spiritual life of the town spins around Teatrul Tineretului institution having one of the best groups in the country.
YT played a special role in theatrics life from Romania even before 1989.
Placed at a considerable distance from Bucharest (370 km), county capital had a greater freedom from the censor's part and the reportorial and stage-manager's initiatives provoked the kindness of the critics.
So, YT becomes very soon the temporary "asylum" of the most talented graduates of Theatre and Film Academy of Bucharest.
In the present, YT is one of the most dynamic, modern and nonconformist theatres from Romania.
Probably thanks to its youth: 70% of the actors are under 30 years old.
