About the locality:
The village was mentioned under the name Urzicuţă de Jos in connection with Bulgarian settlers in 1806–1814 (Roman, L. 1984: 134). According to data from 1830 there were only two Bulgarian families in the village (Романски, С. 1930: 100); however, the 1838 registry of the population shows the presence of 152 “Serbian” families (Velichi, C. N. 1965: 111). G. Weigand visited the village in 1898 and reported that its entire population was Bulgarian (Weigand, G. 1900: 117). He later included it in his atlas as a locality with Bulgarian population (Weigand, G. 1909: Map 67). Up until the second half of the 20th century mixed marriages with the surrounding Romanian population were rare. During fieldwork in 1969 the population was approximately 2000 people, half of them Bulgarian. Older people remembered kinship ties with residents of Bulgarian villages in the Regions of Lom, Orjahovo and Montana; however, language data indicates that most of the settlers must have originated from territories further west. Regarding the dialect see Младенова, Д. 2007. Dialect texts from Urzicuţa describing the local wedding customs have been published in Младенов, М. 1994.
