Danube legends: the mystery of ancient tunnels that span the River

Most legends say that the Moldavian boyars had dug a tunnel under the Danube in order to protect the wealth of Turkish and Tatar invasions. Entering the tunnel they are in a sacred place inaccessible "civilians" under the altar of the Virgin historic church on the Danube. Experts reject the idea that there is such a tunnel but leaves some question marks.

25 Reasons to Visit Romania (1): Danube Delta
Starting today, I will present you a lifetime adventure and another kind of holiday for those who love to discover new lands, nature, secluded villages, history, culture, amazing people, great food, art and entertainment, sea, mountains, cities ...

Dream Gal can easily Danube passes through a tunnel or on a bridge, is centuries old. It may even come from the darkness of millennia, for it is certain that these places were inhabited since before Christ. Over time, around this longing to reach without too much trouble on the bank of Dobrogea (go 800 meters by boat in terms of currents very potent water is not available to everyone) were woven many projects and legends. Even if in the last quarter century predominated projects (none achieved, despite the barrage of promises and the millions of euros spent on all sorts of feasibility studies phantasmagoric), all legends hottest ignite people's imagination. For if you ask the Galatians that's with the tunnel under the Danube, you will find that already exist, secret, did the Romans or the Turks, not quite clear, but they will swear broken authorities' plans this (considered utopian the vast majority) to make a tunnel to the bank auto Tulcea. But back to the legends of this in the past.

Virgin Church Rosslyn chapel is a Romanian? Most of the information circulated locally about existing tunnels beneath the city and under the Danube sits in the center of the story Precista fortified church, which is located on the seafront, just 100 meters from the river. At first glance, Virgin seems kind of Rosslyn chapel of Romania (who read the book "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown, understand parallel), who hides secrets impenetrable by ordinary people. Built between 1643 and 1647 during the reign of Vasile Lupu, Virgin was at the same time, and place of worship but also against invaders fortress. It is the oldest monument in Galati, and they hovered around always a veil of mystery.

Virgin Church bore all the hardships of the times, being burned by the Turks in 1711, destroyed in the wars Russo-Ottoman-1735-1739 and 1769-1774 Austrian years and suffering damages in many other occasions, so that enshrined the invaders they had as a favorite target. French architect who led the restoration of the church (just after World War II) noted that Virgin has a lot of surprising construction details, which make it be a single building. Thus, masonry, among the rows of brick, stone is used, the unused technical Moldovan churches built in the same period. Also, the wall above the windows walls up to the roof is double, forming a gallery as a man can walk comfortably. In addition, there is a large room above the altar, where the barbarian invasions of various jewels and riches made sure the city. The presence of this room within the church, he would say, by chance, because even under the altar (place where you can not look because, by definition, is a sacred taboo) would start a secret tunnel beneath Danube where it could lead to safety fortunes could be saved from the raging enemies prominent residents. It is also conveys the idea that, about a century ago, the tunnel would have been covered with soil at the end of Tulcea and the Danube corridor as would have been used by the rich times to conceal treasures of German and Soviet invaders. Another option would be that the tunnel has two "mouths": one under houses the famous lawyer H. Stephen (whose goods - have a huge collection of paintings and jewelry, valued at tens of millions of dollars - have suddenly disappeared during of the Second World War) and the other in St. George church (a famous church - demolished with great pomp in 1963, the Communists - Cossack hetman that housed the remains of Ivan Mazepa great).

Those who hold the legend Obviously if you want to know things about the past Galati, it is a must to go to a museum. County Museum of History "Paul Paltanea" holds its three locations (headquarters of the Royal House and the House Collections Cuza) extraordinary testimonies of the past of these places. Also, there is evidence exposed at the Museum of History, Culture and Christian spirituality in the Lower Danube, Moldovan Village Museum or The Museum of Natural Sciences. But if you want to escape from the incredible world of extraordinary not need to go to the park Tiglina chess player. There, history takes on a completely different, almost mystical, almost "science fiction" for the venerable fight it (playing chess world as there!) Know the things that history books and official reports do not fit. They keep living legend. And not because the legend would not preserve and propagate and otherwise, but because there chess in the park, people have a peculiar grace in the story, contradicting and be completed each other. In chess park, the tunnel under the Danube is about as gross domestic product: everyone knows it exists, but nobody has ever seen. The few who boast that they were there mercilessly others are ridiculeand legend carriers, who are convinced that the tunnel will be found soon. Those who hold the legend Obviously if you want to know things about the past Galati, it is a must to go to a museum.

Let us return, however, the museum Beyond the words spoken by carriers legends deserve undoubtedly like to have the last word, however, specialists. Cristian Căldăraru, director of the Museum of History in Galati, declaring pessimistic regarding the possibility that our ancestors who have limited technical resources, have built a tunnel under the Danube. However, there is some truth, as history repuatul recognize Galati. "It all started from that uncovered a gallery with a length of 300 meters between Virgin Church and the Church of St. George. This gave rise to the legend that there was such a tunnel under the Danube riverbed and the tunnel through which they may reach the shore of the river Tulcea. There is no evidence of this is just a story, "says Căldăraru. Interestingly, his statement is nuanced slightly adviser Marius Mitrof, the Directorate for Culture and Heritage of Galati, which accredits the idea that the legend remains a legend because samples were lost. "Everything is a legend and will remain so. The way was ransacked Danube promenade in the area is hard to believe that we will ever find any tunnel. I knew how to preserve the history and legends now be satisfied with, "said Mitrof. The fact that the people behind exaggerations there could be a considerable amount of truth somewhere and confirmed that under Galaţi pass dozens of kilometers of tunnels mysterious. Most of them were dug and built back at least 200 years, but unfortunately the city during 1950-1970 rebuilding destroyed them and it has largely stopped.However, the streets of RoyalBalcescuAlexander Cuza, Michael Bravu and coopers (the oldest street of the city) can be found numerous remnants of these vast networks of tunnels that has never been explored and mapped by specialists.
