The Somesul - Satu Mare

The Somesul

The Somesul: Friendly Department Store

The Somesul sotre is called after the cities river (Somes) and was built during the communist regime as a part of the "New City Center" project.
Today, after many refurbishment (that arent completed yet...) it got a new interior look.... every fllor offers a different kind of products.

What to buy: -FIrst floor sells perfumes, cosmetics and decorations. There is a also an electronic shop and an exchnage office at that floor.
-Second floor sells clothes.
-Third floor with sport gear.
-Fourth floor offers a wide range of furniture.
About the fifth floor im not sure... maybe its even closed.... but there is no escalator downward so you shouldnt get up there anyway.

What to pay: The prices are somewhat higher than in the market.... but the products are in better quality too. I found some really good deals a few timews in the sports department so you should check it... :)

The market is a bit messy - Satu Mare

The City Market

The open market is one of the likeable shopping possibilities of the town. Despite all the noise and the crowdedness it can become a very interesting experience.

What to buy: In addition to the fruit and vegetables stands there is another part of bazzars which sells everything you can think about (watches, toys, cd's and more...). My favorite part is the very cool part of clothes and footwear, you can find amazing stuff in cheap prices, there are also some boutiques in the site of the market that sell the same products in 5% higher price.

What to pay: You can buy many stuff that cost about 3 times less then in shops at the center.

Directions: The market is located between Nicolae Golescu and Martirilor Deportati streets.
