Romania is one of the countries that can boast of a rich history. There is almost no city in our country that does not have its own identity and its own stories. In Romania, for years in a row, a city held the title of the most industrialized locality, and even foreigners came to work here.

The city in Romania that attracted foreigners like a magnet

Not many Romanians know the story of Azuga, one of the most industrialized cities in Romania. At the beginning of the 20th century, the main activity of the inhabitants of Azuga was working in factories. Not only Romanians worked here, but also some specialists from Bohemia.

In 1924, there was almost no resident of Azuga who did not have a job in the many factories in the area. From cheese factories, champagne factories, lime factories, cement factories, to glass factories, they were all located in Azuga.

Until the year 1700, Azuga was a wasteland. But, with the influence of royalty and the construction of Peleș Castle, everything changed. From the area without potential, Azuga became one of the most industrialized localities in Romania. In addition, with an advantageous geographical settlement, Azuga did not need much time to impose itself on the map of important areas.

The first factory in Azuga was a glass factory and was built in 1830 by Aslan from Rucăr. Although he brought workers from Bohemia and the Czech Republic to produce blown glass, the business was not very successful. Shortly after the opening, the lock was put on Aslan’s Glăjeria.

Azuga has transformed from an industrialized city into a tourist attraction

The process of industrialization in Azuga continued in 1879. Then Grundfeld brought 250 craftsmen from Bohemia to produce glass. This was just the beginning of what would turn into a pole of industrialization in Romania.

Three years later, a Cheese Factory appears in Azuga, built by Matei Mocanu. Here, the cheese production activity was concentrated in the months of May and June, and then thick milk was produced.

Another equally important factory for the industrial development of Azuga was the Hydraulic Lime Factory. The product from Romania attracted everyone’s attention, and even received the silver medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris, according to adevarul.ro.

In the years that followed, several factories were opened in Azuga, all contributing to the evolution of the town. The Cement Factory, the Postav Factory or the Malul Ursului Timber Factory are just a few examples.

In Azuga, there were not only factories focused on construction materials, but also factories with the field of activity in the food industry. In 1927, the Azuga Brewery was ranked third in the top profile factories in Romania. Although it was produced according to its own recipe, in the amount of 400,000 hectoliters per year, in 2008, the factory reached the brink of bankruptcy.

Instead, one of the longest-lived factories in the area remains the Champagne Factory. Today, sparkling wine is still produced here according to a traditional recipe. Sparkling wine production has been uninterrupted since 1892.

Currently, Azuga is no longer recognized for its industrial potential. Due to the changes over the years, the potential of the area has become a tourist one.
