On the outskirts (Marta Ivaylova, 28.09.2012)
About the locality:
The village is known since 1806–1814 as a locality with Bulgarian population under the names Gratia or Sârbii ot Gratia (Roman, L. 1984: 143). At the end of the nineteenth century residents were described as “Serbs” making a living in market gardening. Their houses were old but solid. They adhered to their traditional way of life and stood aloof from the surrounding Romanian population (Antonescu-Remuşi, P. S. 1890: 106, 180; Lahovari, G. I., C. I. Bratianu, G. Tocilescu 1898-1902 3: 241, 624). During his visit at the beginning of the twentieth century however S. Romanski observed the existence of mixed marriages (Младенов, М. С. 1993: 36). G. Weigand visited the village in 1898 and established that its population was partly Bulgarian whereas the population of the neighbouring Sârbi de Gratia was entirely Bulgarian (Weigand, G. 1900: 118). He later included it in his atlas as a locality with Bulgarian population (Weigand, G. 1909: Map 67).
