Baia Mare is the largest city in the Maramureş region. Looking at the new parts of the town might seem unsightly for some, but the old neighbourhood and the lovely park, the charming sites around the town and the interesting history of the place are worth to get attention.
Volanbusz runs daily(?) buses from Budapest to Baia Mare via Satu Mare during the summer for only 4500 HUF (youth fare)
It is not very expensive and minimum charge will be 5 lei.
Baia Mare is the main transportation hub and largest economic center in Maramures, but the city itself is quite ugly and industrial. If you come in to either the train station or the bus station, you will instantly notice this as they are some of the worst in the European Union. Consider getting out to smaller villages across the northeastern mountain pass to experience the "real" Maramures.
