An European Village


The commune Sinca Noua, located at the south-east side of Fagaras town, has an interesting history. The village was incorporated once in Sinca Veche village, first mentioned in 1291. In 1762 occurred the big cleavage, when 88 families moved on 10 km uphill, in the area with no communication road. ?Except for four reach families, the entire village moved on, outrunning the Austro-Hungarian occupation. The 88 families took the church?s bell, carried it on a cart and climbed the hill?s crest till a monks community with a little church where they installed the bell? tells the mayor Dumitru Flucus, which ancestors lived here.

Charmed Bell and charming Traditions

The little church has been hosting the bell for centuries, till nowadays. They say the bell is charmed; when the weather lowers and there is menace of thunders and lightning strokes, the most proximate inhabitant rings the bell and chases away the distress.
The locality also boasts the biggest church in the county, painted with biblical scenes. Every Sunday the priest celebrates the religious service and the parishioners listen to the newly established chorus.
The inhabitants are hospitable, still conserving their traditions, costumes and habits. They have resuscitated, after 50 years, an ancient custom called ?The wheel on fire? and they where traditional clothes on feasts and cultural manifestations.

The first ecological commune

According to mayor Dumitru Flucus, Sinca Noua is for now in ecological conversion; in June 2007 it will become the first administrative and territorial unit to be entirely ecologically certificated. ?There is twining link between us and Wulkov, an ecological locality from Germany, that teached us a lot about this field. A company from Switzerland will made an investment (milk procession, abattoir and meat procession) that will produce only bio-certificated products?.

European Village

Sinca Noua town hill participated at a contest organized by the delegation of the European Commission in Romania and won the quality of European village. ?The are four NGO?s functioning within the commune; we organized the civic society and established many projects. We endowed the commune with phone, Internet, gas-distribution network. We also rehabilitated the streets and established a German nursery school. For all these we received the title of European village in 2005? mayor Flucus stated.
