The list, [1] created in 2004, contains places that have been designated by the Ministry of Culture and National Patrimony of Romania and are maintained by the Romanian National Institute of Historical Monuments, as being of national historic significance.

LMI Code

The LMI code (List of the Historical Monuments code) identifies uniquely an historical monument or archaeological site, and includes, in this order:

For example, IS-II-a-A-03806 is the LMI code for Cetățuia Monastery. IS indicates the site is in Iași County. II indicates it is an architectural monument, a that it is an ensemble, A that it is of national interest, and 03806 is its unique code. The ensemble has six individual sites, so for instance the monastery's bell tower, the fifth site listed, has code IS-II-m-A-03806.05.

Sites may also have a RAN Code, indicating they are part of the National Archaeological Record (Repertoriul Arheologic Național), a register including sites with archaeological potential, sites where archaeological excavations have taken place or ruined archaeological sites.
