  • One of the symbols of identity of the region; It is full of churches of Woods, built in wood of various trees, without a single nail, using the technique of Assembly; eight of them are world heritage site: Barsana, Budesti, Desesti, Ieud, Plopis, Poienile Izei, Rogoz and Surdesti. However, there are many others that also deserve to be so, particuarmente the second church in Ieud and Rozavlea liked. The system to visit them is almost the same in all; the Church is located next to the cemetery of the town so you can see the outside freely; to access the interior, if it is closed, we will find in the door a phone number, if we call soon appears someone with the key and us open; in general the prices are around 5 lei per adult and 2 lei per child, although it may vary some ones to others; usually there is no problem when shooting interiors. All rooms have parking at the entrance, in general very limited, for 3 or 4 cars, except Surdesti, which boasts a large enough parking. It is convenient to divide them in two days, since they are located in two valleys different: Mara and Izei. If we want to see them all on the same day can be exhausting and worth enjoy them taking all the time as needed. Personally, the more they liked were two churches of Desesti, Ieud, Plopis and Rozavlea.
