The Executive President of Europa Nostra drew the attention of the new President to the two
Romanian sites listed in 2013 and 2014 among the 7 Most Endangered heritage sites in Europe,
namely the historic mining landscape of Roşia Montană and the wooden churches in southern
Transylvania and Northern Oltenia.
For many years, Europa Nostra has advocated that the sustainable future of Roşia Montană can
only be ensured through the safeguard of its cultural heritage which, if well maintained and
preserved, will only get richer, and will become a source of economic and social prosperity for
the entire region and an example to be followed in other similar cases not only in Romania but
also in the rest of Europe.
In the light of the above, Denis de Kergorlay appealed to President Iohannis: “We feel that a firm
and well-argued public position on the value of this outstanding site, coming from you, as the
new President of Romania, will be effective in placing the debate on the positive and promising
track of cultural heritage and its value for society, in tune with the latest European policy strategy
