Săcele ( German Siebendörfer , Hungarian Négyfalu and formerly Szecseleváros ) is a city in Romania in the Brașov district , which belongs to the Transylvania region. Its center is located around 15 kilometers south-east of the city center of Brașov , the western district of Baciu has merged with the outskirts of the city. In terms of area, Săcele is the third largest city in Romania.
The German place name Siebendörfer has its origin in seven localities that were probably created to secure the border. These seven localities have the following Romanian, Hungarian and German name: Baciu / Bácsfalu / Batsch village , Turches / Türkös / door Eschendorf , Cernatu / Csernátfalu / Zernsdorf , Satulung / Hosszúfalu / Langendorf , Tărlungeni / Tatrang / Tatrang , Purcareni / Pürkerec / Pürkeretz and Zizin / Zajzon / Zuisendorf .
In 1950 the administrative merger of Baciu , Turcheș , Cernatu and Satulung to the city of Săcele (the Hungarian name of the city of Négyfalu means "four villages"). The other three of the seven villages now form the municipality of Tărlungeni .
Since 2013, the city council has not been able to decide to display a coat of arms for the city until 2015.
In 1850 there were 17,212 people living in the area of today's city, of whom 9985 described themselves as Romanians , 6340 as Hungarians and 872 as Roma . In the 2002 census, 29,915 inhabitants were registered, of which 21,364 Romanians, 7164 Hungarians and 1291 Roma and 75 Germans . Unofficial estimates, however, assume around 10,000 Roma who live in four settlement areas on the outskirts.
In the village there is the Trambuline ski jumping facility, a former training center for young jumpers of the Romanian national team. After parts of the facility were stolen in 2006, it is falling into disrepair.
