In 3rd of August 1601 battle from Guruslău takes place, where Mihai Viteazu and general Basta carried a new fight against Prince Báthory Zsigmond. The locality was entirely destroyed, that's why Guruslău was moved in a more protected place.

In 1928 on the hill near the locality a high monument was built of 10 m commemorating the battle. Knocked down in 1941 by Hungarian authorities is rebuilt in 1976 in a more towering way, on the basis of sculptor Victor Gaga's projects.

The monument is dedicated to Mihai Viteazu voievode who succeeded for the first time the unification of the three Romanian medieval countries: Moldova, Romanian country and Transilvania. The road goes up on the serpentine hill, but the view seen form top recompense the effort.
