Baia Mare
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).
