Banks and currency

Although Maramures is considered a rural destination there is a well developed network of bank branches and ATMs so you can redraw money whenever you need. More and more places accept card payments, just ask them when you walk in. 

Primarily the banks and ATMs are present in the cities and towns: Baia Mare, Baia Sprie, Borsa, Cavnic, Dragomiresti, Salistea de Sus, Seini, Sighetu Marmatiei, Somcuta Mare, Targu Lapus, Tautii Magheraus, Ulmeni and Viseu de Sus. In the rural areas tourists can find banks and ATMs in Barsana, Bogdan Voda, Botiza, Farcasa, Moisei, Ocna Sugatag, Ruscova si Sapanta.

Most of the banks have currency exchange office so there is no need to carry large sums of money with you. Try to avoid using private exchange offices as some of them will charge a commision fee.
