Carei

City name & location: Carei, Satu Mare (SM) county, Romania.

Short presentation:
  • The municipality of Carei is located in the Northwestern part of Satu Mare county, in a plain region, 35 km far from the capital of the county (Satu Mare city).
  • The town was called after a person's name (in 1262, in a document, "Karul" appears as a name of a person), but the etymologyof the word can be traced back in the name of a bird "Karul - Karvaly", taken from the ancient Turkish language. The bird that can be found on the coat of arms of the Károlyi family as well was most probably the tothem of the family.
