Where to buy


The Macin Mountains are the oldest mountains in Romania, formed during the Hercynian orogeny, 380-280 million years ago. Together with Niculita Hills, they are bordered to the north by Glacisul Jijiei and Glacisul Isaccei, to the east by Trestenic Hills, to the south by Glacisul Macinului, and to the west by Jijia, Greci and Cerna-Mircea Voda depressions.

Geologically, the Macin Mountains are made up of granite, shale, greywacke and conglomerates (Carpelit strata), granite and diorite in the highest part, quartzite, phyllite, etc. As a result of long-lasting geological events and erosion, the mountains have the aspect of ruins, not even reaching the elevation of 500 meters. The highest peaks are Tutuiatu (467 m) and Suluku Mare (370 m).

The most important tourist attractions are Culmea Pricopanului ridge with specific granite rock formations, the Ruins of Troesmis Fortress, Lake Iacobdeal, and Cocos Orthodox Monastery. It is worth visiting Macin National Park and nature reserves such as the paleontological site of The fossiliferous place of Bujoarele and Cocos Monastery Nature Reserve. There are also rare animals like the Dobrogea turtle (Testudo graeca ibera) and the European copper skink (Ablepharus kitaibelii).

The map of Macin Mountains (MN24) is the 24th map of the new Muntii Nostri collection.

The map was edited using the latest mapping techniques and it was printed on moisture resistant paper. It is easy to read and simple to use due to the mapping styles, specific to Schubert & Franzke company, and as a result of practical information structuring. It is handy and everything is exactly where it should be. The map is useful for both hiking enthusiasts and professionals.

All the trails have been recorded in the field using a GPS. They are described in detail in both Romanian and English, some trails having representative images attached to them. Each trail has a technical box containing: trail marking checked in the field, trail route, profile with major landmarks, data on difficulty, length, total ascent, total descent, round-trip time, practicability depending on the season and so on. The map also contains the UTM grid, a projected coordinate metric system useful in the quick measurement of distances on the map. Shading and contour lines highlight the landscape and facilitate orientation.

The application created for iOS and Android will dissipate the nostalgic aura of the map, giving the product the technical complexity required for this century.

Enjoy this map up on the sunny peaks of Macin Mountains, scrutinizing the horizon for the remnants of ancient civilisations.
