Bistri?a-N?s?ud (Romanian pronunciation: ['bistrit?sa n?s?'ud] ) is a county (jude?) of Romania, in Transylvania, with the capital city at Bistri?a.


In Hungarian, it is known as Beszterce-Naszód megye, and in German as Kreis Bistritz-Nassod. The name is identical with the county created in 1876, Beszterce-Naszód County (Romanian: Comitatul Bistri?a-N?s?ud) in the Kingdom of Hungary (the county was recreated in 1940 after the Second Vienna Award, as it became part of Hungary again). Except these, as part of Romania, until 1925 the former administrative organizations were kept when a new county system was introduced. Between 1925-1940 and 1945-1950, most of its territory belonged to the N?s?ud County, with smaller parts belonging to the Mure?, Cluj, and Some? counties.


On 31 October 2011, it had a population of 277,861 and the population density was 51/km2 (130/sq mi).[1]

83.1% of inhabitants were Romanian Orthodox, 6.3% Pentecostal, 4.6% Reformed, 2.3% Greek-Catholic, 1.2% Roman Catholic, 0.8% Baptist, 0.7% belonged to "another religion", 0.5% Seventh-day Adventist and 0.5% other or none.

The county has a total area of 5,355 km2 (2,068 sq mi). One third of this surface represents the mountains from the Eastern Carpathians group: the ?ible?, Rodna, Bârg?u and C?limani Mountains. The rest of the surface represents the North-East side of the Transylvanian Plateau.

The main river crossing the county is the Some?ul Mare. On the Bistri?a River there is a big dam and a lake.
