There are fewer places left where you can feel like going back in time, centuries back. And one of such a places is in the center of Europe, in Romania most fairy-land district - Maramuresh. You'll travel slow, but you'll see wonderful kind and smiling people, and you'll see those churches - like jewel boxes, with their spires going high... More

One of the best places I've been... I visited that place during the day (in the Easter's week) and attended the Easter's celebration, with an outdoor Mass. It's amazing the architecture of the buildings, the gardens around them. If you want to visit, please prepare your machine because i'm sure you will take many photos.

We visited the wooden churches in Budesti and Surdesti and were blown away by their beauty. They are beautiful constructions with unique interiors and are in very nice and quiet small villages. It was absolutely worth the trip to get there. We highly recomment them.

The wooden churches, wooden houses, quaint villages, and pastoral scenes are not to be missed. Breath taking. When in the little town of Botiza we stayed at George Iurca and used him as a guide. So glad we did. We saw places we would have otherwise missed. Visit the Elie Wiesel House and the Communist prison. This is an area... More

We visited the wooden churches at Budesti and Ieud. The are very unique and a marvel of engineering. The east side of the churches are built in a circular five sided fashion. This is the side where the altar is. The interiors are also interesting with painting. These are 16 and 17th century buildings. The area where these churches sit... More

In Maramures, the country is breathe taking. This is one of the few places that is truly peaceful. It is also set in it's ways, and very unique

We toured Romania last year and spent 4 days with a private guide, Cornelia Lupsa, who is from Baia Mare. Cornelia has a comprehensive knowledge of the history of the area and we covered an incredible distance in the four days we had allocated to this part of our trip. We also visited Merry Cemetery at Sapanta, the Jewish Museum... More
