History[edit]

The first recorded mention of Bujor dates from 1364.[3] The locality had a high importance in the Middle Ages, being the center of a Vlach district. In 1453 this district had a knyaz, Dionysius, and was donated by King Ladislaus V to John Hunyadi. In 1596 the Bujor District was part of Hunyad County. Within its borders there was at that time the village of Baia, and a little further the village of Chitești, both disappeared.

In the past, the hearth of the village was in the Gladna Valley, on the place called "Little Village" (Romanian: Satul mic). Due to the frequent floods, in 1823 the village was moved to its present place, protected from floods.[4]
