Writing identification

Hi there! I was wondering if anyone can fix this photo so that the writing on the board on the building would be more clear...It's the only way I can identify the exact place where the photo was taken. Much appreciated!

Hi Lorena

From the information that I gathered this is the city of Curtea de Argeș in Romania. If you are looking for the exact location in that city that could be tough. Here is the best I could do with the sign in the image. I do not speak, read, or write Romanian so I cannot give you any guess on the wording. Hope this helps:

Re: Writing identification

Well one thing you can do is scan at a much higher resolution. Right now its just 474x315 pixels.
