Kort historie

The locality was first mentioned in documents from 1777. In a map dating back to 1723 the locality carried the name Pesneak, and in 1761 Bosneak. It seems that there were two settlements - Bosnia and Baron, their merger formed the current settlement - Moldova Nouă.

In the local administrative charter from 1808 the town is called Neu Moldova (New Moldova). The Upper Clisurii area of ​​the Danube (from Baziaş to Cozla), where Moldova Nouă is located, has been inhabited since ancient times.

The earliest traces of human settlement are from the Paleolithic era, in and around the territory of the village of Gornea (Sicheviţa commune). In the perimeter of the city of Moldova Nouă and in biggest part of the localities in Clisura, archaeologists have made discoveries from all the other periods of ancient history including the Bronze Age.
