The land of wooden churches, mythological richness, impressive landscapes and very ancient customs

Târgu Lapuş

The capital of Lapuş Country is the town of Târgu Lapuş. Several thousand people live in and around this town that acts as the main commercial center for the vast Lapuş valley. Here villagers come to do business, purchase goods, and use the modern day services. Visitors will find benches to watch the world go by in a small plaza located in the center of town. It pays to sit for awhile in Lapuş Country.

In Lapuş, a large number of people are employed by small- to medium-sized manufacturing operations. One place open to visitors is the Filbac furniture factory located on the road from Târgu Lapuş to Lapuş. Logs from the mountain forests are transported to mills in Lapuş and from the mills, lumber is brought to the furniture factory where it is dried and then transformed into furniture for far off markets. Opposite the furniture factory is a yarn factory where spools of multicolored yarns of various strengths and types are filled by modern machinery. The wooden furniture factory and yarn factory are struggling to stay afloat in the ever more competitive global economy. But with the talent and ingenuity of people from Lapuş Country, strategies have been developed that will insure prosperity into the future.
