Geocache Description:

[RO] In nordul indepartat al tarii se afla o veche regiune miniera din Maramures.

[EN] Located in the far north of the country, in an old mining region of Maramures, with beautiful landscapes.

[RO] Orasul Cavnic

Regiunea este bogata in minereuri si am aflat de ea din multele roci expuse la muzeul de Geologie din Bucuresti. Astazi minele sunt in mare parte inchise, dar se dezvolta puternic turismul local si ca statiune de ski cu partii proaspat construite.

Cutia se afla pe drumul dinspre Strambu Baiut catre Cavnic, in zona inalta a pasului Cavnic. In apropiere se poate opri intr-o mica parcare si admira muntii din imprejurimi.

Cutia este un container de film 35mm, negru.

Continut initial :

  • mini-jurnal
  • creion
  • soldatel de jucarie

Cateva cuvinte cu multa intelepciune se gaseau pe un panou din apropiere :
"Aurul verde! Aurul padurilor! Sanatatea si bogatia romanilor."
Panoul a fost refacut, dar mesajul este acelasi.

[EN] Town of Cavnic

The area is rich in mining and many rock and mineral samples from these mountains can be found at the Geological Museumin Bucharest. Today most of the mining is now closed, but the area is developing as a touristic resort with newly built ski slopes.

Cache is located on the side of the road from Strambu Baiut to Cavnic, on the high mountain pass. One can stop in the nearby parking to admire the view below, before descending on the other side, into Cavnic.

Container is a black 35mm film canister. Limited room for trade.

Initial contents :

  • logbook
  • small pencil
  • toy soldier

A few words of great wisdom on a nearby panel :
"Aurul verde! Aurul padurilor! Sanatatea si bogatia romanilor."
"Green gold! The Gold of the Forest! The health and wealth of the romanian people.
The panel was repainted, but the message it conveys stays the same.
