The Mureș county lies in the Carpathian Arch and has a harmonious landscape with rich and varied natural resources. The relief of the district consists of an intracarpatic basin that descends from the volcanic basins of the Călimani and Gurghiului Mountains towards the center of the Transylvanian plain. The hills with gentle interfluvias belong to the Transylvanian Basin.

Geographically, we distinguish three main forms of the landscape:

  • The Transylvanian Plain of Transylvania north of the Mureş River;
  • Târnavelor highlands, south of Mureş;
  • Transylvanian Carpathian foothills in the eastern part of the district.

The area of ​​the district also includes a network of running water, lakes, ponds and artificial retention basins.

The climate in Mureş County is continental-temperate, with differences in the hills compared to the mountains. Average annual temperatures are held between 8° - 9°C in the west and 2° - 4°C in the east, with the month with the highest temperatures being July with 18° - 19°C and the month with the lowest temperatures being January with -3° - 5°C.

Rainfall ranges from 550 mm per year in the western part to 1000-1200 mm per year in the mountain area. The prevailing winds are those of the west and northwest with intensity and medium frequency.

The culture in the Mureș county is characterized by a long tradition of popular cultural, ethnographic and artistic art. The oldest cultural settlements include libraries, institutions with a rich tradition. The first library  was established in 1557 near the special school, which became a reformed college at the beginning of the 18th century.
