Baia Mare, Romania, is a city in the country's northwest; the Ukrainian and Hungarian borders are only fifty and seventy kilometres away respectively. Baia Mare is the capital city of Maramureș County, a region covered by the Rodna Mountains, which belong to the Eastern Carpathians. But the whole county is not dominated by the mountains -- you can also find valleys, plains, and some smaller hills. Mining had been an important source of income for the local economy for centuries, but after the revolution the importance of this industry declined significantly. Around one hundred thirty-six thousand people live in the capital city, which was first mentioned in documents in the fourteenth century. The centre has preserved some of its Medieval architecture around the main town square Piata Libertatii.

In the city centre, you can find numerous hotels and guesthouses; the accommodations are spread in the whole centre and free Wi-Fi is a common standard. The price level is quite low compared to more touristic regions in Romania. Backpackers can also check out the supply of Baia Mare, Romania hostels; you will not find many hostels in Baia Mare, Romania, and keep in mind that your chosen Baia Mare, Romania hostel may have age restrictions (you must be over eighteen to be allowed to stay).

The Mineralogy Museum is a good option if you are into material science. Here, can you find excellent examples of local crystals and rocks, including some superb crystal flowers. The oldest building in the centre -- a remnant of a former castle on the east side of the main square -- dates from the fifteenth century. It was built by a Transylvanian prince. Stephen's Tower (in Romanian, Turnul lui Stefan), characterizes the centre of Baia Mare. Towering over the main square, the watchtower was built in a beautifully Gothic style. If you are interested in hiking and exploring the nature in the mountains nearby, visit the Rodna Mountain National Park. This natural and diverse reserve has been awarded Biosphere Reserve status by UNESCO.
