Travelling in time without a time-machine.

Maramures, Ieud.

Daily prayer of the Rosary by local women from Ieud village, Maramures.

Besides the beauty of the wooden churches and of the lanscapes, aside from the unicity of Sapanta’s Merry Cemetery, one the main attraction of Maramures rests with its people.

Isolated by the mountains, this remote Romanian region was less affected by the Communist aggression and the madness of the forced collectivization, therefore it has better preserved old crafts, customs and traditions, and a strong religious devotion.

While touring Maramures villages you’ll discover its people and get a grasp of how Europe was long ago.

Just have a look at Roses’ pics from our tours in Maramures.
