Moisei (Hungarian: Majszin) is a commune in Maramureș County, Romania. Composed of a single village, Moisei, it is one of the oldest communes in Maramureș County, first attested in 1213. This place is well known for the monastery near the village, founded in 1672.
Moisei is located in the southeastern part of Maramureș County, at 136 km from Baia Mare, the county seat, at 5 km from Borșa and at 7 km from Vișeu de Sus. The village is located mainly on the Vișeu River’s course, on Dragoș Spring and on Black Spring (Black Valley). Together, these waterways constitute the main landscape of the village, along with the houses that are built on hills up to 800 m high.
The commune is situated in the relief unit called Maramureș Hollow, under the Vișeu corridor. Practically, Moisei is placed at the bottom of Rodnei Mountains, having Pietrosu mountain on its upper side and the Maramureș Mountains to the north. Passage from Lunca Vișeului to the mountain area is made naturally from hills with heights between 600 and 800 m.
