Explore More About Vi?eu de Sus:

Vi?eu de Sus is a town in Maramure? County, Maramure?, Romania, located at the confluence of the rivers Vi?eu and Vaser. It administers one village, Vi?eu de Mijloc. It has an area of 443 km² and a population of 15,000. It is best known for the Moc?ni??.

Vi?eu de Sus is the terminus of a forestry railway system that extends deep into the Vaser river valley approaching the Ukrainian border. Timber is cut on the hillsides at the head of the valley and brought down by rail for cutting in the sawmill at Vi?eu. The waste wood is burned in the locomotive boilers. The nearest national railway (CFR standard gauge) passenger station is at Vi?eu de Jos, 4 km away, on the line 409 from Salva to Sighetu Marma?iei. The passenger branch to Bor?a (via Vi?eu de Sus itself), although closed to passengers in 2009, remains mostly intact (as of 2014) for freight.

The town of Viseu de Sus, according to most authors of monographs, is documented from February 2, 1365 (Ketwyssou). This first mention of Vi?eu de Sus as a settlement appears in the diploma of the King Louis I of Hungary. According to other authors, the settlement was documented since 1549, under the name of "Vi?eul Nou" (The New Vi?eu) or "Între Râuri" (Between Rivers), being situated at the confluence of the two rivers – name met until the beginning of the 20th century.

Vegetation is an important element of the natural environment, as well as a factor of tourist attraction. The variety of the relief and the climate are elements that have determined a rich and varied background in the Maramure? Mountains.

The flora and vegetation represent a great importance and interest in several points of view. In an economic point of view, we mention the importance of fodder, melliferous flowers, medicine, food, decoration, etc.
