Also known as „The Pearl of Moldavia”, the resort Slănic Moldova is placed in the south-west of Bacău
county. At an altitude of 530m, on the eastern side of Oriental Carpathians, in Nemira mountains (that are part of
Trotuş-Oituz chain), Slănic Moldova is placed in a narrow depression, crossed by Slănic river. The town is situated at
46°17’ northern latitude and 26°37’ eastern longitude.
The oldest testimony about Slănic Moldova is given in the book of Constantin Cehan Racoviţă: January 1,
1757. The name of the town was given after the water that crosses its land – the river of Slănic, also adding
„Moldavia” in order to differentiate it from Slănic Prahova.
When the first spring with salted and stinging water was discovered, the water was analyzed and the search
was continued, successfully finding – an year later – springs no. 3, 4 and 5. Starting with 1808, with the permission of
the ruller Scarlat Calimachi, 12 families of peasants from the salt mines move here, in order to take care of the two
small houses that had been built for those who came for treatment and baths.
Slănic Moldova is 86 km away from Bacău. The precious touristic offer of Slănic Moldova is determined by the quality
of its natural environment: hydro-mineral resources (mineral waters and therapeutic gases). Besides tourist activities,
there are some small wood processing facilities (saw mills, carpentry works and small furniture manufacturers). Agro
tourism, pilgrimage and cultural tourism are also developed because of the regional cultural and historical heritage.
Renewable Energy Sources
Now: There is a heating system with solar pannels, for the school.
Future: Installation – in order to replace or complete the classical heating systems – of systems that use solar
energy, geothermal or wind energy, or other systems that lead to a better quality of air, water and soil.
Rational Use of Energy
Now: Thermic isolation of buildings that are publicly administrated: schools, kindergartens, administrative
Future: Thermic isolation of the blocks of flats, through a national programme of thermic improvement of
