The Commune of Sic

It lies on 56.4 square km surface and only comprises the village of Sic which first was attested in documents in the year of 1291 and was considered a free royal city.

The more striking development of the city took place between the XIV - XVI centuries being favored by natural conditions, the presence of salt which was long and intensely exploited.

Salt was extracted from 3 mines and transported by carriages to Dej where it was embarked on rafts on the Somes River and taken to Satu Mare and to Hungary.

From 1438 and up to the present the settlement is divided into three areas: Felszeg (Uptown), Forroszeg (Hot town) and Csipkeszeg (Lace town), respectively street number I., II., III., each of these featuring its specifics as if they were separate settlements.

Din 1438 si pana azi localitatea este impartita in trei parti: Felszeg, Forroszeg si Csipkeszeg, respectiv str. I, a-II-a, a-III-a, fiecare dintre acestea cu specificul ei, ca si cum ar fi localitati separate.

The three collaborated only in special cases. Even marriages were forbidden between youngsters who lived in different streets. A lot of the customs have lived up to our days.
