Barsana Monestery is not easy to reach. You must travel on a lot of winding country roads. But the site itself is beautiful. It is tourist minded with WC and kiosk for a cold drink. Wander around the well kept grounds and enjoy the amazing architecture using the wood products of the neighboring forests.

The place is full of peace and quiet. We enjoyed the wooden sculptures of the monastery and we visited the church. I recommend it.

"Pass through the wooden gate and you'll step into the heaven" told us the old men who traveled with us. And he was right. The place it's spiritual and calm, intelligent designed, nice made, well maintained. I left the place with the feeling that I'm more calm and good, and with the promise that I'll come back there, sometime.

It's a nice place, it's not very crowded and you also get to walk around in their little garden. The Monastery itself is beautiful. Overall, a must-see if you get to visit the Maramures county.
