Historical significance for Rosia Montana
The Region has also historical significance, as many personalities
(such as Simion Balint, Avram Iancu) got inoved in the emancipation
movement from 1848.
Up to 1972, some mine-galleries from Rosia Montana were open to visitors who were
able to see the holes in the galleries and imitate the ancient routine of extracting gold
by throwing a boiling mixture of the spot.
1981,celebrating a 1850 years from the discovery of the site, a museum
was organized that exhibits some Roman galleries (unique in the whole
Europe),ancient gold mills activated by water and other objects typical
for the craft.
This region, full of history, is threatened by a huge gold mine/mining career.
