This article, as the title of its says, it’s about Carei town. Most of you don’t know about it, I’m sure, but no problems. I’ll tell you everything you need to know about it, how important it was in the Romanian history and of course I’ll show you the tourist attractions of its.
Carei is a small town , compared to other ones. As little as it is, it actually has a very important history, and of course, is the last part of Transylvania which was recuperated by the Romanian forces from Hungarian occupation.
After the collapse of Austria-Hungary at the end of World War I, Carei became part of the territory ceded to Romania in 1920 under the terms of the Treaty of Trianon. In 1940, under the auspices of the Third Reich, which imposed the Second Vienna Award, Hungary retook this territory from Romania. During World War II, however, it was taken back from Hungarian and German troops by Romanian and Soviet forces on 25 October 1944, day which has been celebrated since as the Day of the Romanian Armed Forces.
Although between 1760 and 1920 the town was the seat of Szatmar county, the industrial development is not significant and it basically preserves its agricultural specific until about 1960. In 1926 it was attached to Sălaj county. After 1945, Carei is included in the Baia Mare district, and after 1968, along with the administrative-territorial reorganization of the country, it returns to Satu Mare county.
Until World War II, the industry of the town consisted of mills, the Oil Factory “Ardealul”, a station for collecting and fermenting tobacco and some small workshops. During the Communist period, Carei gradually turned into an industrial town.
