The Maramures Region consists of about a dozen Rusyn villages along the southern bank of the Tisza (Rusyn: Tysa) River and its tributaries the Viseu (Rusyn: Vyshova) and Ruscova (Rusyn: Rus kova) rivers. Also included on the southern bank of the Tisza is the town of Sighet/Sighetu Marmatiei, which was the administrative center of the pre-World War I Hungarian county of *Maramorosh (Hungarian: Maramaros) and a cultural center for the local Rusyn community. After World War I Maramorosh county was divided along the Tisza River between Czechoslovakia (*Subcarpathian Rus ) on the northern bank and Romania (the Maramures Region) on the southern bank.
