Explore Romania: The life of a coal mine - Prahova Valley (Episode 3) - 4K


Romania has a long tradition in coal mining, although (like most of Europe) most of what it produces is low quality lignite.  Today it's a mid-tier coal producer within the EU, using virtually all of its production for domestic electricity generation.  In this video, contributor Alin Constantin gives us a fascinating look at a coal mine in Filipestii de Padure, a town in the Wallachia (Muntenia) region of the country not far from the capital.  Dating to the 1800's, it was one of the first modern coal mines in the country.
