Location: 45°30'52.34"N,  23° 5'35.30"E
Pui commune is located in the southern area of the limits of Hunedoara County, 65 km away from the county seat, Deva.
Pui commune consists of 12 villages: Pui - the commune residence, Băieşti, Federi, Galati, Hobita, Ohaba Ponor, Riu Barbat, Ruşor, Şerel, Fizeşti and Uric.

Neighborhood relations are: at the western border of the administrative territory, with Sălaşu de Sus commune; To the north-west Pui commune is neighboring the village of Sântamăria Orlea, to the north with the village of Boşorod, to the north-eastern boundary with Orăştioara de Sus commune and to the east with the commune of Baru.

Pui commune is crossed by the electrified railway Simeria - Petroșani. Pui is located adjacent to the Simeria - Petroșani railway line. The railroad area is marked by regulation boards and is 100 m from the cadastral boundary.

The main road access in the area is provided by D.N. 66, direction Deva. Due to the varied relief of the commune, the traffic flows on the characteristic arteries of each area. Thus, there are different class roads, from class V to class I, including forest roads:
• The National Road 66 Simeria-Petrosani,
• County Road 667 Chalet-Baleia Chalet (asphalt 5.5 Km),
• The communal road 64 Galaţi-Fizeşti (asphalt 1.6 km),
• The communal road 65 - D.N. 66 - Dive - Ohaba-Ponor - Federi (asphalt),
• The communal road 71 Hobita-Uric,
• The communal road 72 Ruşor-Şerel,
• The communal road 73 A Băieşti.
Inside villages the circulation takes place on non-modernized streets, mostly with temporary clothing. The relationship between localities is hampered by the poor state of the communal roads and especially the county road 667, which is impractical with the car. The repairs and maintenance of these roads have been set as primary targets.

The first documentary attestation of the Pui village dates back to 1426, as a domain belonging to a French family of origin, named Puly. In the first half of the 20th century, Pui was an important administrative, commercial and even administrative-financial center with a well-built middle class, even wealthy. It is believed that many settlements in the Streia Basin (Barbat, Paros, Uric, Petros, Hobiţa, etc.) were formed following the immigration of the peasants from the Streia valley and Haţeg Country.

There are a wide variety of relief forms, from the meadows in the central area of ​​the commune, to the high mountains that fall within the Retezat mountains, to the southern part of the commune and the middle to the north of the commune, the Şureanu mountains consisting of crystalline rocks with a geological structure Complex with well developed denudation surfaces and poorly represented glacial relief.
From the topographic point of view, the Pui commune's land is uneven, with differences of level of 360,00 meters (In the Streiu meadow, near the village of Băieşti), up to the quota of 1791.00 meters in the southern part of the commune, Tulişa.
