Mioveni town lies in the Getic Plateau, in the area which links the Arges Hills and the Candesti Platform, in the central part of the county. Our locality is superposed of a relief of hills surrounding the mountains, having at their origin the lake plains covered by vast dejection cons. Mioveni town has got a relief of accumulation belonging to the Candesti Platform which appears surrounded by torrential valleys in the eastern part, crossing generally from north to south. In the western part, the relief is compound of terraces, ending with the Arges Valley , Targului River and Doamnei River . There is vegetation characteristic to the hill areas, determined by the climate and the soil. The man’s intervention is visible in the valley area and on the terraces, where the spontaneous vegetation was substituted by cultures of plum-trees, apple-trees, cereals and vegetables.
In the forest domain, the man’s intervention is visible by deforestations mostly with negative effects upon the hills.
There are a lot of buildings in our small town: five schools, two high schools, a Town Hall, a cathedral, five churches, a Culture House, a museum, a hospital, two hotels, a few restaurants, two supermarkets and a lot of shops.
The citizens from the center live in blocks of flats with four storeys and those in the other districts have got houses built in an architectural style characteristic to our hill area. The blocks of flats lie on one and other side of Dacia Avenue. After this avenue the way goes on with a long county road, at the end of which, at almost seventeen kilometers' distance we reach Pitesti, the residence of our county. At the other end of the avenue, the way goes on with another county road which helps us to reach the mountain area with its wonderful landscape.
The five districts of the town are called: Mioveni, Colibasi, Racovita, Faget and Clucereasa, the former names of the villages which have composed the new town. The streets are clean and the pavements are large, with benches and bedflowers. People are hardworking and friendly, always ready to help each other.
Due to the preocupation of the Local Council and the Town Hall, the development of the town is more and more flourishing, supported also by the County Council which gives a great budget for such a small town, the benefit being possible through the achievements from the car industry and to the funds given by the governmental programmes.
The County Environment Department supports all the towns of Arges County, showing by all sorts of actions that the protection of the environment is a major problem of each town, mainly in the actual context when our country has become a member of the European Union from January 1st, 2007. Conscious of this matter, students and teachers of our town and especially of our school bring their contributions by means of projects like "Eco-School" and "Learn About Forests".
All around us is lovely and we are very happy to live in such a nice town. Childhood is "at its home" in a town like ours because joy and friendship give a real sense to our lives.
