and is situated in central-East of Romania,
between Carpatii Orientali (Eastern Carpathian Mountains)

Its end was after the defeat of Decebal and his armies by the roman conquerors of Dacia.
In the last decades, the construction of the industrial platform Dumbrava Rosie, Savinesti, Roznov
and the development of the old enterprises,
made Piatra Neamt a significant economic centre.
Approximately 50 per cent of the industrial production of the county
are made here and the plants have an important share of the national industry
(chemicals, wood-processing, pulp and paper, foods, ready-made clothes, etc).
There were raised new residential districts and new public edifices.
The number of inhabitants went beyond 123 thousands.

the fortifications placed on the present location of the Piatra Neamt town.

in the Batca Doamnei – Piatra Neamt present site.

The Medieval Complex,
placed in the historical centre of Piatra Neamt city,

which from the archaeologist have discovered pieces
of walls, stairs, and archways.
