Olteniţa Street (Marta Ivaylova, 26.09.2012)
About the locality:
At different times the village was also referred to as Sârbi or Cornăţelu. Bulgarians settle there as early as 1769–1774 (Roman, L. 1984: 137). In 1831 the population was 219 (Велики, К. Н., В. Трайков 1980: 261). A document, shedding light on a tax-related conflict soon after settlement, has been published in Романски, С. 1930: 229–301 and Младенов, М., Б. Нягулов, Н. Жечев 1994: 37–38. Bulgarians from Mânăstirea actively participated in the 1848 revolution (Velichi, C. N. 1971: 260). G. Weigand reports that at the time of his visit in 1899 half of the population of the village was Bulgarian and later included it in his atlas as a locality with Bulgarian population (Weigand, G. 1900: 119; Weigand, G. 1909: Map 67). In 1972 there were approximately 300 Bulgarian and Romanian families altogether and only the oldest generation was still speaking Bulgarian. Dialect texts from Mânăstirea describing the local wedding customs have been published in Младенов, М. 1994.
