Baia Mare

Baia Mare Municipality is an important urban centre in the north-western part of Romania. Due to its advantageous geographical situation it constitutes a crossroads of the road and train network creating a convergence point for the surrounding towns Baia Sprie, Recea, Tautii Magherausi.

The basic activity of the economic sector has long been the mining industry in Baia Mare. However, besides traditional economic activities modern ones need to be integrated in this area and also the cultural component is very important. Thus the Municipality’s development strategy focuses on preserving the existing cultural heritage of the city (including ceramics and small crafts and living folklore traditions) and on long-term and sustainable urban rehabilitation in accordance with economic, social and cultural development of the region. Efforts are made to transform the town into an attractive place for tourism and business. Baia Mare is a very dynamic city which is continually expanding and changing.

There is an old and continuous tradition of ceramics in the city, many different kinds of ceramics can be found here. Potters of Baia Mare are well known both nationally and internationally, offering ceramics for use at home, decorative and miniature ceramics, different figurines and original creations. Some of the artisans are followers of century long family traditions, while some are new to the profession, thus bringing in new creativity realised in new forms and patterns. Small crafts also make up for a significant proportion of the city's economic wealth, especially woodcraft, textiles, leather and metal works.
