Centuries after their construction, the wooden churches of Maramures stand today as a living testimony of Romanian peasants' devotion to God and of their craftsmanship in wood and church painting.
Eight of these wooden churches - from Dealul Ieudului, Poienile Izei, Bârsana, Budesti-Josani, Desesti, Surdesti, Plopis and Rogoz - are on the UNESCO World Heritage list. They are well preserved. These wooden churches are considered to be representative for the precious heritage of Greek-Catholic and Orthodox communities.
We visit the wooden Churches of Maramures during our 7-days private tours in Transylvania.
