Harjap’s Hole

The legend is about the Battle of Baia (a village which is situated at 9 km from Falticeni – The ex-capital of the medieval state ‘’Moldova’’) which took place in 1467 in the night of the 14th of December. The battle was between Stephen the Great and Matei Corvin. Corvin was injured in the battle and he was helped by a villager, his name was Harjap and they passed the mountains in ‘’Ardeal’’.The traitor was caught and locked in an old  mine, from that day this mine was named “Groapa lui Harjap” (Harjap’s Hole); and the key which the mine was locked with is hidden under the “White Church”(the image above).BISERICA ALBA
