The Liberty Plain

Blaj, judetul Alba


At the town's edge, where Tirnava Mare slowly flows, rises an obelisk whose inscription reminds us that: "... this monument was erected during a time when people had the power, in memory of the 40,000 serfs from Transylvania, who on 3/15 May 1848 gathered on this plain to claim their social and national rights. "

Under the leadership of Avram Iancu, Gheorghe Baritiu, Ion Axente Sever and other leaders of Transylvania, the masses embraced with zeal the cause of the revolution, whose main goals were national liberation and the feudal privileges' abolition. The great assembly on Blaj Plain, that has been since named the "Liberty Plain", was attended by Romanian peasants, intellectuals, merchants, craftsmen. Also present were scholars and revolutionaries from Moldova and Wallachia: Alecu Russo, Vasile Alecsandri, Costache Negri etc., who afterwards narrated the strong emotions they experienced by participating in this solemn event.

Then, like an echo of the idea of state unity, voices of people were heard asking: "We want to unite with the Country". The enthusiasm of the Liberty Plain meeting begeted the "Union Round Dance" famous poem and the same glorious days inspired poet Andrei Muresanu to write the immortal anthem of the movement for national liberation of all the Romanians: "Desteapta-te romane!".
