Baia Mare
Then we drove almost without stopping to Baia Mare for lunch at Hotel Carpati, where we ate in a typical gazebo type structure that is very common in Romania. Art had bean and ham soup, and I had mushroom soup, tomatoes, and a big bowl of cherries which I couldn't finish. Food and setting were very nice.

According to Rough Guide, we missed a small, scruffy square in old town; the Art Gallery with canvases by artists of the Nagbanya School of art; the County Museum; and the Museum of Mineralogy with a myriad variety of rocks, crystals, and ore deposits extracted from the region's mines. It was best, though, to have a longish lunch and soak in the pleasant atmosphere of the outdoor restaurant.

From Wikipedia: On 30 January 2000 a dam encircling a tailings pond at a facility operated by Aurul S.A., a jointly owned Austrian and Romanian company, broke. The result was a spill of 100,000 cubic meters of liquid and suspended waste containing 50 to 100 tonnes of cyanide[3]. The spill caused serious environmental damage on the river Tisa.
