The Crisana

Like the neighbouring Banat region, the Crisana only became Romanian in 1920. The towns of Oradea and Arad dislay the Habsburg coat of arms, as do its spa resorts that recall the days when eastern European aristocrats came here to take the waters. The three Cris rivers have formed the broad plain that lies at the foot of the Apuseni mountains. Separating Crisana from Transylvania, this karstic range is dotted with isolated villages retaining their traditional wood churches and houses.
