Keywords: Trascău Mountains | Geographical space organisation | Romania

The geographical space of Trascău Mountains is made up by a series of longitudinal ranges, corridors and plateaus, which are named according to their position within the analysed region: the Western Corridor, the Western Plateau, the Central Corridor, the Central Range, the Eastern Plateau and the Eastern contact area or border. The valleys crossing these longitudinal units create beautiful gorges between depression areas. Most settlements are small and very small, lying along the corridors or the valleys, but some are scattered on the hills. Their importance increases eastwards. Their economic function is changing, from forestry and breeding towards agriculture. The polarizing flows are organized along the main rivers, but there is a need of improving the infrastructure. A model of the Trascău Mountains is presented, and several proposals are made to take the region out of isolation.
