Ciucurova Traditions

Each ethnic group has preserved its customs and faith, proof that even now exists in Ciucurova a mosque, the German church ruins, but also an Orthodox church. And because each ethnic group has its customs and traditions, which they hardly kept throughout history, often avoiding the process of assimilation, each ethnic group has preserved its customs and traditions.
