Short history:

On founding the Eparchy of Gherla, two towns were proposed to become the bishopric’s centre: Dej and Baia-Mare. But a third town has been chosen, Gherla, Baia-Mare remaining a strong greek-catholic centre in the area of Maramureş. The importance of this area was confirmed in 1930 by the foundation of the new Eparchy of Maramureş, having its centre in Baia-Mare, by the Sollemni Conventione, on June 5, 1930.
