Şureanu Mountains are situated in the south-west of Transylvania, belonging to the Carpathians. The region had been represented on cartographic documents since old times, but detailed maps were made beginning with the Habsburg period. The aim of our study is to display the evolution of cartographic elements exposed on several maps from the 18th century till nowadays. The toponyms reflecting settlements, roads, rivers and landforms have been changed from one cartographic edition to another due to the language on which the documents were written in Transylvania, each dominant administration (Austrian, Hungarian, Romanian) influencing the toponymy of these places. We also analyzed space changes of settlements, routes of transports and valleys in order to show differences in the stages of economic development of the studied mountain region.
