Description of the destination Simleu Silvaniei

Simleul Silvaniei is situated in the western area of Salaj County, at a distance of 29 km from the city of Salaj.

It is located in the meadow and terraces of Crasna Valley, being dominated in the north by the crystalline massive of Magura Simleului, an ancient remnant of a crystalline chain, with the appearance of a hillock and a maximum altitude of 597 meters.

The hills around the town have the look of gentle hills, mostly deforested.

City's climate features are conditioned by general and local factors. The area is included in the sector with the temperate climate with mild oceanic influences. Average annual temperature is about 9 degrees Celsius and a magnitude ranging between 19.3 and 27.6 degrees Celsius. Depression appearance of the landscape promotes the penetration from south - southeast of air masses and their stagnation, with the consequence of the appearance of the thermal inversion phenomena. Besides the temperature inversions, the area is also characterized by early and late frosts, a reduced number of days with fog and high humidity of the valley compared to the slopes.

Annual average rainfall is 700 mm, with a peak in June-July and a minimum in March.

To the east of the city hot springs were discovered. Water temperature is 40 degrees Celsius and it has a salt content similar to the Boghis baths. The spring is related to Crasna River which continues to Supuru de Jos village.

Situated at the foot of the hill Magura in the beautiful valley that bears its name, the city of Simleul Silvaniei was documentary attested for the first time in 1251, when in a document issued in Alba Iulia, it is mentioned Vathasomlya, the first name known of the locality. In 1251Vatha, together with his sons Pausa and Dionisie sold Simleu estate to the palatine Roland and the magistrate Maurice of Pok family for the sum of 100 florins.

City's history is much older than the year 1251, this land belonging to the State of Burebista and Decebal, according to archaeological discoveries made on the hill of Magura Simleului, as the Dacian silver hoard from Cehei, dating from the late second century BC, which highlight the existence of a powerful Dacian settlement, probably the ancient Dacidava, mentioned by the geographer Ptolemy in his "Geographical Guide”.
