Piatra Neamt City - Romania

   Piatra Neamţ
(population: ~ 110,000) is the capital city of Neamt County, in the historical region of Moldavia, eastern Romania.Because of its privileged location in the Eastern Carpathian mountains, it is considered one of the most pictoresque cities in Romania.
    The city lies in the Bistrita River Valley, surrounded by mountains - Pietricica (590 m), Cozla (679 m), Cernegura (852 m), Bâtca Doamnei (462 m) and Cârloman (617 m), at an average height of 345 m. The city has all the advantages offered by a kind and unique nature.
    The first urban settlements, which emerged under Petru I Musat (1375-1391), were Piatra lui Craciun, Roman and Neamţ. The Neamt citadel whose documentary attestation dates back to February 2, 1395, was also erected during the same consolidation period of the Moldovian pricipate east of the Carpathians. The Princely Court of Piatra Neamţ is mentioned for the first time in a document dated April 20, 1491, to have been founded between 1468 and 1475, under Stephen the Great, the Princely Cathedral being built in 1497-1498, and the 20 m. tall Bell Tower in 1499.
