Piatra Neamţ lies in the Bistriţa Valley, surrounded by mountains - Pietricica (527 m), Cozla (665 m), Cernegura (851 m), Bâtca Doamnei (455 m) and Cârloman (642 m), at an average height of 345 m. The city has all the advantages offered by a kind and unique nature. The city is located 350 km north of the capital city of Bucharest, in the historical region of Moldavia. The nearest airport is Bacău, situated at 60 km south. Piatra Neamţ is linked by Romanian railway trunk number 509 to Bucharest and Iaşi and by DN15 national road to Bacau (therefore DN2 to Bucharest), Iasi, Suceava and Târgu Mureş. The area around Piatra Neamţ is one of the oldest inhabited areas in Romania. The oldest traces of human civilisation in the present territory date back to the higher Paleolithic, about 100,000 years BCE. The Cucuteni culture, whose development lasted approximately one thousand years (ca. 3600-2600 BCE) was attested in the territory of Neamţ county by a remarkable number of settlements (approx. 150), archaeological diggings unearthing important museum collections of Aeneolithic artifacts. Archaeologists have also discovered objects here dating back to the Neolithic Period and the Bronze Age (about 1900-1700 BCE). Excavations just outside the city revealed the ruins of a large Dacian city, Petrodava, mentioned by the Greek geographer, Ptolemy, in the 2nd century. The whole compound had its heyday between the first century BCE and the first century CE. Standing out is the citadel at Batca Doamnei which contains shrines resembling those identified in the Orastiei Mountains As far as the existence of a local leader is concerned, historians tend to suggest the identification of the Kingdom of Dicomes in the very political centre at Petrodava. The complex of strongholds without peer in Moldavia and Wallachia is evidence as to a powerful political and military centre both in Burebista's time and in the period that preceded the reign of Deceballus. The settlement was documented in the 15th century as Piatra lui Crăciun, or Camena, a market town. The first urban settlements, which emerged under Petru I Musat (1375-1391), were Piatra lui Crăciun, Roman and Neamţ. The Neamt citadel, whose documentary attestation dates back to February 2, 1395, was also erected during the same consolidation period of the Moldovian pricipate east of the Carpathians. The Princely Court of Piatra Neamţ is mentioned for the first time in a document dated April 20, 1491 being founded between 1468 and 1475, under Ştefan cel Mare, the Princely Cathedral being built in 1497-1898 and the 20 m in height Bell Tower in 1499.
