  • Năsăud town was built on the site of ancient settlements, attested by historical relics discovered in the area. Archeological tracks place habitation in this area since the late Neolithic, further under the Roman domination until 1245, when it was mentioned for the first time the name of the locality as "Naszod". Since the sixteenth century, Năsăud becomes an increasingly important center for the municipalities of the Someş Valley. Located at the crossroads of major routes coming from Bistriţa and Maramureş, the town starts to prosper.
  • In the 18th century is formed here The Border District of Năsăud, named "The Second Valah Infantry Frontier Regiment no.17", having as emblem the Austrian imperial eagle and the inscription "Virtus Romana Rediviva" (the Revived Roman Virtue). This moment transforms Năsăud in a very important center of the area, often visited by famous personalities of the time, as emperors and government members, generals and civilian and military officials. The troops of the regiment took part in more than 130 battles, the most famous one that is kept in the memory of the local community being the battle of Arcole, when General Napoleon Bonaparte himself praised the bravery of "Catanele negre" (the border soldiers). Among the most important achievements of their time are the schools built in Năsăud, the town becoming an important cultural and educational center of the time.
  • In Năsăud, we come across a peculiar "world" where folklore, customs, traditions and its famous schools are at home. Schools here are famous due to the people of culture that have formed the basis of their education here. Năsăud gave the country 21 academicians, reason for which Năsăud is also called "The Town of Academicians".
