22-Dec-2001 -- Together with my wife and my daughter, we started to find one of the undiscovered confluence of Romania at seven o'clock in the morning. It is a frosty Saturday rise of day, the sky is cloudy. We start from Budapest, the distance is about 245 km (152,2 miles). Cross the frontier at Artand-Bors then straight ahaid to Oradea (Nagyvarad), which is Transilvania's (Erdely) biggest city. From the center of Oradea (Nagyvarad) along the path road E79 to the direction Hunedoara (Vajdahunyad). After about 5 km (3,1 miles) leave to the left toward of Baile 1 Mai (Puspokfurdo), than on the first road-junction, whitch is 750 meters (820,2 yards) left too the direction of Rontau (Ronto) village. 1,36 km (0,845 miles) from the last road fork, Rontau (Ronto) village's main street's NE side, there is the 47N 22E confluence, which can be found on the court of the house Nr. 70. The peasant had just get ready for pig-killing exactly there where the confluence is, so we rather not ask him permission to go inside.

The elevation of the confluence is 184 m (201,2 yards).
