Cultural infrastructure (holidays and traditions with local, historical monuments, museums, libraries).
Moldova Noua's culture bears the imprint of the special conditions of this area. In its becoming, it is the result of the interaction of traditions and customs practiced by a heterogeneous population who worked and continue to work here. Since the founding of the village until now, in these teritories have lived together Austrians, Czechs, Slovaks, Hungarians and Romanians from Oraviţa and Almăjului Valley. Later, after the Great Union of 1918, and in particular after the establishment of the socialist system, Romanians from other areas of the country came to work in mining. The culture of these places was marked by specific traditions belonging to each ethnic segment of the population, each combining the features of a multiethnic culture. In the years of socialism there has been a regression concerning cultural events, customs and traditions.
Cultural pluralism is sustained by cultural institutions that operate in Moldova Noua, by the existing ethnic communities, by local culture promoters and by the historical monuments representative for Moldova Noua city.
