Sinca Noua, a Living Legacy


Sinca Noua, situated in the County of Brasov, is a Romanian village included in the ethno-folk area of Fagaras ? Marginimea Sibiului. The local people are proud of their cultural identity and the traditions here are highly respected. On the occasion of Easter, the householders pay special attention to the holiday of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and make special preparations during the Holy Week: dyeing and painting eggs, making cozonaci (sweet bread) and pies and baking home-made bread. After going to church to attend the Easter Mass, local people have a celebratory meal where family and friends knock the pointed ends of coloured eggs.

Folk Costumes

"The Town Hall of Sinca Noua pays much attention to the preservation and conservation of the local customs and traditions. We have accomplished several projects which add value and promote our cultural and historical heritage in this area. The folk costume is proudly worn by the people of Sinca especially during holidays. The folk themes are typical to the Region of Fagaras. As a result of many events taking place within the local community, many families started to have their own new folk costumes made by the old women in the village and craftsmen from the neighbouring villages," said Mr Dumitru Flucus, Mayor of Sinca Noua.

Cultural Identity

Through the Project "Sinca Community ? Cultural Identity" financed by the Partnership Foundation Miercurea Ciuc, King Baudoin Foundation Belgium, Carpatica Foundation Romania, the Program "Living Legacy", a local four-voice choir was set up; its members collected and got the best possible value out of the local songs and carols. Much of these have been recorded on CDs. A folk dance group has also been founded performing local dances typical to holidays and various festivals. The traditional dances of the region are: fecioreasca, rara, purtata, invartita, posovaica, sarba and braul. Most of them are executed with a high degree of difficulty and spectacularity.

The European Village

The Town Hall of Sinca Noua participated in a contest organized by the delegation of the European Commission at Romania and won the title of European Village in 2005.
Sinca Noua is a picturesque mountain village, situated on the valley of Sinca in between the Mountains of Persani to the East and the Mountains of Fagaras to the West. The local landscapes are wonderful, with vast forests, grasslands and meadows with a wide variety of plants. The wild animals in this region are numerous: bears, wolfs, lynxes, deer, roebucks, wild boars, chamois, otters, rabbits, etc.
The local people are hospitable, hardworking, living in harmony with the nature surrounding them.
