CEZ Group: Kulas into the light

CEZ Romania, an energy and gas company, launched a programme to raise awareness of the historic role that 'kulas' (defence towers) have played in the cultural and social development of communities in Romania.

Where it All Started - Campaign Summary

The Romanian kulas ("Kula" = Turkish word for "tower") were built by boyars to defend their families and wealth from Turkish marauders. Of the 200 documented kulas, 27 have survived, in various degrees of conservation.
