In an alley (Marta Ivaylova, 29.09.2012)
About the locality:
The older name of the village Balta Lungă more recently refers to one neighbourhood in it. Bulgarian settlers come in two waves: in 1806–1814 and 1828–1834 (Roman, L. 1984: 139). The 1838 registry of the population claims the presence of 55 “Serbian” families (Velichi, C. N. 1965: 113). The local oral tradition establishes a connection of the refugees who founded the village with the Bulgaria-based village Pordim, region Pleven; however, the language data do not support this localization. Until the end of the nineteenth century, the residents of Crângeni kept aloof from their Romanian neighbours and preserved their language, traditional costume and customs. The compulsory military service introduced around that time speeded up the process of assimilation (Georgescu, P. 1897: 79; Lahovari, G. I., C. I. Bratianu, G. Tocilescu 1898-1902, 2: 778). G. Weigand includes the village in his atlas as a locality with Bulgarian population (Weigand, G. 1909: Map 67). Dialect texts from Crângeni describing the local wedding customs have been published in Младенов, М. 1994.
