Traditional costumes can still be seen in the sub-Carpathian valleys of north-east Transylvania. Bistrita was one of the Saxon towns of Transylvania consequently the immediate area has little costume, but the valleys into the Carpathians are predominantly Romanian. In the north Someşul Mare valley goes through Salva famous for the peacock feathered hats, Năsăud, Sângeorze-Bai and Maieru, with Leşu further up on the mountains. The pass from Maramureş goes through Coşbuc and joins at Salva. The Bârgăului valley is the main route east from Bistriţa to Moldavia. To the south of Bistrita are the Şieu and upper Mureş valleys. Monor is at the head of the Şieu, and Idecel is not far, across the Mureş.
