The Furnace in Govăjdia, Hunedoara County, is located at the western end of Govajdia village, 20 km from Hunedoara (10 km on the narrow railway line). The furnace is famous because there have been some cast iron components for the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and cast iron for the Eiffel tower produced in the Reșita factories. However, it should be noted that the Romanian historian Ion Bocioacă in his book "Gheorghe Pănculescu, legend and truth" contests this statement (see the bibliography). This furnace in its time was the first continous furnace in Europe and the second largest in the world.
Today it is open to visitors. The building was declared in 2000 as a monument of industrial architecture (Law no.5 of March 6, 2000) and is included on the list of historical monuments in Hunedoara County.
