Baia Mare (Frauenbach/Nagybánya) The Essential
Gold and silver mines in the Maramures region brought wealth to this town, which has also developed its tourist infrastructure. Its historic centre has the fine Baroque-style Liberty Square, dominated by St Stephen's tower (1468). Baia Mare is proud of its five museums housing a variety of collections; note the museum of art (modern Romanian paintings), the Maramures regional museum (local history) and the museum of ethnography and folk art (devoted to artisanal crafts from the area).
